Long Live Queen Elizabeth II: 10 Reasons We're Obsessed

Her Monochromatic Outfits

Her Monochromatic Outfits

The Queen of England is also the queen of timeless, classic style. She’s known for her monochromatic outfits, complete with matching hats and jaw-dropping jewelry. Fun fact: Queen Elizabeth II began wearing bright, one-colored outfits so she could be easily spotted in large crowds. She’s smart and stylish.

Her Excited Face

It's an understatement to say that Her Majesty has been photographed multiple times. Thanks to this, you can easily tell the difference between her polite smile for the public and other dignitaries, and her true, I’m-so-dang-excited smile. We love when a person wears her emotions on her sleeve, and the Queen does just that. Also, she occasionally throws some facial shade, which is glorious.

Her Staying Power

As of September 9th, 2015, Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest reigning monarch in England’s entire history, beating out Queen Victoria. During that time, we've seen 12 prime ministers, 11 U.S. presidents, 7 popes, but only 1 British queen.

Her Swag

She keeps a stiff upper lip, but every now and then she lets loose, like when she jumped out of a plane with James Bond at the Olympics. Or more importantly, she rolled around in her Land Rover wearing the royal version of a hoodie (see slide 10 for evidence). All her assistants and guards were in the back while Her Majesty handled things. “Straight outta Buckingham Palace.”

Her Stank Face

This is the queen of all stank faces. If you’re in Parliament and you see this, you did something wrong and should run. If you’re Prince Philip, and you see this, you should run out to buy her a corgi and a thoroughbred, then beg for her royal forgiveness.

Her Puppy Love

Nope, it’s not with her husband, Prince Philip. It’s with her corgis. Her life-long love affair with this stubby-legged, butt-wiggling breed began when she was a child and led her to own more than 30 corgis during her reign, not including those she and her family owned prior to her coronation.

Her Epicurean Tastes

We like to drink, and you know who else likes to drink? The Queen of England. According to her cousin, Her Majesty’s alcohol consumption is quite...robust. She has gin before lunch, wine with lunch, and a martini and champagne to wind down in the evening. Sounds like a hydration regime we can support. Cheers!

Her Feminism

She amended laws that previously prevented certain grandchildren from being called “princess,” but now male and female great-grandchildren will all be princes and princesses. Princess Charlotte will certainly thank her later. It might not have changed the lives of millions of young girls, but hey, every little bit helps in the fight for gender equality.

Her Own Noah's Ark

Her Own Noah's Ark

As the Queen, she owns all swans and “Fishes Royal” in the waters around the UK. She also frequently receives exotic animals as gifts from foreign dignitaries. These animals, think sloths and monkeys, are always given to zoos where they can live in comfort. 

Her Lead Foot

Her Lead Foot

She is THE boss Britch (get it? British + bitch). Queen Elizabeth II was an army driver in the 1940s (World War II) so it’s safe to say that she knows how to handle a vehicle. Not to mention, she drove the late King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia around once in 1998 despite the fact it’s illegal for women in his country to drive. Oh, women can’t drive, you say? Just watch me, says the Queen.
