    Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother is the mother of Queen Elizabeth II, the present British sovereign, and the widow of the late King George VI. She was born the Honourable Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon on 4 August 1900. From childhood days The Queen Mother and her older sisters had been friendly with the children of King George V and Queen Mary. In January 1923 came the announcement of her engagement to HRH The Duke of York, The King and Queen''s second son. They were married on 26 April 1923 in Westminster Abbey.
    They had two children, Princess Elizabeth, born on 21 April and Princess Margaret, born on 21 August 1930 at Glamis Castle. King George V died in January 1936. When King Edward VIII abdicated on 11 December the same year, the accession of the Duke and Duchess was proclaimed and they assumed the responsibilities of the throne.
    With the outbreak of war in 1939, there was some suggestion that the Queen and her daughters should evacuate to North America, but throughout the Second World War the Queen and her children shared the dangers and difficulties of the rest of the nation. She was in Buckingham Palace when it was bombed in September 1940. She and the King visited badly damaged areas throughout the country after the air-raids, and toured Britain visiting hospitals, factories and troops.
    The last major public occasion that he and the Queen attended together was the opening of the Festival of Britain in May 1951. The King died peacefully at Sandringham, on 6 February 1952. Since the King''s death, The Queen Mother has continued her public duties in the UK and overseas.
