How Queen Elizabeth Changed the Law to Make the Monarchy a More Equal Place for Women

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has passed away at the age of 96. She died at Balmoral Castle with her family by her side on Thursday, September 8, drawing a close to her reign of 70 years, making her the longest reigning monarch in British history. Many are undoubtedly reminiscing over her recent moments: her iconic sketch with Paddington for her Diamond Jubilee; her moving address to the country during the pandemic; her Olympics 2012 contribution, which saw her mock skydive into the Olympic Park (named after her) alongside Daniel Craig. 

But there are, of course, more seminal moments to look back on too: her ascension to the throne in 1952 after the death of her father, King George VI, making her a rushed queen at just 25 years old; or that heartbreaking image of the then 95-year-old alone at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, clad in black, with a mask to match, at the funeral of her husband, Prince Philip, only last year.
