Elizabeth II Trivia Questions

1. Queen Elizabeth II died on 8th September 2022, What was the name given to the collection of plans covering her death and subsequent funeral requirements?

From Quiz
Queen Elizabeth II and her Royal Officers

Answer: Operation London Bridge

Holding the highest office as the Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth II died at Balmoral in Scotland; she was the first British Monarch to die there since 1542. "London Bridge is down" was the code phrase used to inform The Prime Minister of the death of the sovereign. As she died in Scotland, as part of 'Operation London Bridge' 'Operation Unicorn' was implemented to convey her body back to London. If she had died overseas, 'Operation Overstudy' would have come into play. When George VI died, the Prime Minister was informed with the phrase "Hyde Park Corner" 'Operation Tay Bridge' related to the death of the Queen Mother, and 'Operation Forth Bridge' was used for Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. This question was written by Phoenix Rising team member smpdit.

2. London Bridge is Down is an alternate name for the plan that went into action when Queen Elizabeth II passed away on 8th September 2022. What is the official title of the plan?

From Quiz London Bridge Is Down

Answer: Operation London Bridge

From all accounts, The Queen was quite pragmatic and well-organized, so the fact that her funeral was planned as early as the 1960s should come as no surprise. There have reportedly been private meetings between law enforcement, government, and media representatives that were held three times a year since then in order to review and update plans as needed. In 2017 an article in "The Guardian" stated that the procedure was so precise that it was planned "to the minute". Operation Lion is the overall plan in place for any royal death. While Operation Forth Bridge was the plan in place for the death of Prince Philip, Operation Menai Bridge is the plan for the future death of Charles III.

3. Sir Paul McCartney said that his first encounter with Queen Elizabeth took place when he was ten years old. What was the nature of this encounter?

From Quiz Remembering The Queen

Answer: He wrote an essay about the monarchy.

When he was 10 years and 10 months, according to his own handwriting on the essay, England was preparing for the formal coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. He took part in a competition that was held all over England to write an essay about the monarchy. Even at this age, Sir Paul showed a remarkable talent for writing, as he won the competition for his age group at school. He also reminisced that when he won it was his first time on any kind of a stage. It must have been quite a day for him; the essay was preserved in a scrapbook and still exists today.

4. Who was the British Prime Minister when Princess Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926?

From Quiz God Save the Queen! Elizabeth II

Answer: Stanley Baldwin

Disraeli first became Prime Minister in 1868, Churchill in 1940 and Heath in 1970. At the time of her birth, the Princess Elizabeth was third in line to the British throne behind the Prince of Wales (later Edward VIII, abdicated 1936) and her father, the Duke of York, later George VI. Other events of note in 1926 were Gertrude Ederle becoming the first woman to swim the English Channel (breaking the record held by a man by almost two hours), Robert Goddard firing the first liquid fuel rocket and Emporer Hirohito ascending the Japanese throne.

5. In which year was Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor born?

From Quiz Seventy Years on the Throne

Answer: 1926

Her name derives as follows: Elizabeth after her mother, (Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon) Alexandra after George V's mother, (Elizabeth's Great-Grandmother) Mary after George V's wife, (Elizabeth's Grandmother).

6. When was Queen Elizabeth II born?

From Quiz Do You Know Queen Elizabeth II?

Answer: 21st April 1926

Elizabeth II was born Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary at 2.40 am on 21 April 1926 in London at 17 Bruton Street. "The Queen's Birthday" however, is the day on which the birthday of the monarch of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth countries is officially celebrated. The date of the celebration varies from country to country. She was the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, but she was not born to be the heir to the throne as she was third in line. Her father's older brother was first in line, next her father, then her. It was only in 1936 when her Uncle Edward abdicated that she became the next in line after her father.

From Quiz Queen Elizabeth II: War to Coronation

Answer: car mechanic

She entered as Second Subaltern Elizabeth Windsor, rising to the rank of Junior Commander. This was a wonderful opportunity, the first she had ever had, for the Princess to mix with girls of a different class from her own. She attended daily and became a skillful driver.

9. Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was born on April 21, 1926. Where was her birthplace?

From Quiz Early Life of Queen Elizabeth II

Answer: 17 Bruton Street

Although her parents were living on Curzon Street, Elizabeth wanted to be with her mother when she gave birth so they moved in with her parents, the Earl and Countess of Strathmore at Bruton Street. The building is still standing in Mayfair, with a plaque commemorating her birth. In August, 1930, again to be with her mother, Elizabeth chose to give birth to her second child, Princess Margaret Rose, in Scotland at the Strathmore's summer residence, Glamis Castle.

10. Her Majesty was what number monarch since William the Conqueror?

From Quiz How much do you know about Elizabeth II?

Answer: 40th

The Queen was Head of State of the UK and 15 other Commonwealth realms. The elder daughter of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth was born in 1926. She became Queen at the age of 25, and reigned through more than five decades of enormous social change and development. The Queen was married to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and had four children and eight grandchildren. Her Majesty was 38th in direct line of descent from Egbert (c. 775-839), King of Wessex from 802 and of England 827 to 839. She was the fortieth monarch since William I (William the Conqueror), and also the great-great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

11. What was Queen Elizabeth II's full name?

From Quiz Elizabeth II

Answer: Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor

Elizabeth was named after her mother, great-grandmother Queen Alexandra, the wife of Edward VII, and her grandmother, Queen Mary, the wife of George V. Elizabeth was the first child of her parents, the future Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mother) and George VI. (At the time of her birth, they were the Duke and Duchess of York and had no reason to expect that there would be any crisis on the death of King George V).

12. With what name was Her Majesty christened?

From Quiz Queen Elizabeth II

Answer: Elizabeth Alexandra Mary

She was named after her mother (Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother), her paternal great-grandmother (Queen Alexandra) and her paternal grandmother (Queen Mary).

13. Following the death of her father in February 1952, the new Queen returned to London. The first person to greet her was her Prime Minister. Who was he?

From Quiz 'Lilibet's' 50 Year Reign

Answer: Winston Churchill & Churchill

Elizabeth was at Treetops, a game lodge overlooking a watering hole in Kenya, when her father passed away in his sleep 3000 miles away at Sandringham. The following day Winston Churchill, by then in his late seventies, was waiting on the tarmac, sombre, bareheaded and dressed in black, to welcome her home as the new Queen. He would spend many hours with Elizabeth guiding and supporting her, and remained her Prime Minister for the next three years until ill health forced his resignation.

14. Edward Fitzalan-Howard was The Earl Marshall at the time of Queen Elizabeth II death and he was responsible for organising her State Funeral. This position is a hereditary one, held by which dukedom?

From Quiz Queen Elizabeth II and her Royal Officers

Answer: Duke of Norfolk

The Earl Marshall is one of the Great Officers of State, and is also responsible for organising coronations, the annual 'Opening of Parliament' as well as state funerals. Edward Fitzalan-Howard is the 18th Duke of Norfolk. He was born in 1956 and continues in his office into the reign of Charles III, where his first role will be to organise his coronation. He and his wife Georgina, have three sons and two daughters. As Earl Marshall he is the head of the College of Arms, which is the fount of all knowledge regarding genealogy and heraldry. His office grants warrants regarding Coats of Arms. He carries a baton of gold with a black finish at either end and this is seen in his heraldry. The Dukedoms of Sussex, York and Cornwall are not hereditary titles, but are bestowed by the grace of the Monarch. This question was written by Phoenix Rising team member smpdit.

15. The phrase, "London Bridge is down", was also a code phrase used to notify which top official of Queen Elizabeth II's death?

From Quiz London Bridge Is Down

Answer: Prime Minister

The procedure in place planned that The Queen's private secretary would be the first official to learn of her death, and would, in turn, notify the Prime Minister with the code phrase, "London Bridge is down". This would insure that the news was disseminated to the correct people in the correct order. The outgoing Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, met with The Queen on September 6, 2022, in order to resign, and the new one, Liz Truss, met with her on the same day. During this time Elizabeth II invited Truss to form a government. The changing of power was held at Balmoral Castle (near Aberdeen in Scotland), where The Queen was spending her usual summer vacation, instead of London, because of Her Majesty's ongoing health-related problems.

16. To which of her Norman ancestors, who made quite an entrance in England, did the young Sir Paul McCartney compare Queen Elizabeth?

From Quiz Remembering The Queen

Answer: William the Conqueror

Actually Elizabeth II was the x27 granddaughter of William the Conqueror, who was the first Norman king of England. That's not to say that she didn't have quite a family lineage, that included Alfred the Great and George III. But in McCartney's essay, he focused on the fact that there was quite a ruckus at William I's coronation - which there was. When the Saxons cheered for William I, the Normans took it the wrong way, and began killing many of them and setting their houses on fire. This, he said, would not happen at the Queen's coronation, as she would rule with affection rather than force. Sir Paul has also stated that people in his neighborhood were so excited about the coronation, that many of them finally decided it was time to buy a television so that they could watch - in black and white, of course. It was the first spectacle of its kind to be televised in full.

17. Where did Elizabeth II receive her education?

From Quiz God Save the Queen! Elizabeth II

Answer: At home with tutors

According to The Biography Channel (biography.com) the curriculum of Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret Rose included French, mathematics, history, geography, dancing, singing and art lessons.

18. When she was born, where was Princess Elizabeth in the line of succession to the British throne?

From Quiz Seventy Years on the Throne

Answer: Third in line

When she was born, George V was on the throne. His eldest son, Edward (later Edward VIII) was the heir. As Edward did not have any children, Elizabeth's father, Albert (later George VI) was second in line. This made Elizabeth third in line.

19. Who was the husband of Queen Elizabeth II?

From Quiz Do You Know Queen Elizabeth II?

Answer: Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh was born Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark on 10 June 1921. He was born into the Greek and Danish Royal Families, but his family was exiled from Greece when he was a small boy. He was educated in Germany and Britain. He joined the British Royal Navy when he was 18 and served during World War II. After the war he renounced his titles and adopted the surname "Mountbatten" from his British maternal grandparents and was known as "Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten". After his marriage to the then Princess Elizabeth he became His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. He passed away in April 2021. Princess Elizabeth was 13 years of age when she first met 18 year old Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten, who was a distant cousin. When they married in 1947 she was 21 years of age.

20. Which country was Prince Philip referring to when he said: "The b*st*rds murdered half my family"?

From Quiz A Right Royal Mess?

Answer: Soviet Union

This comment was made to a room full of press agents in 1967 when asked if he would like to visit the Soviet Union.

21. On VE day there was great rejoicing all over London. The King, Queen and Princesses were at Buckingham Palace. How did Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret celebrate victory?

From Quiz Queen Elizabeth II: War to Coronation

Answer: They joined the crowds and danced in the street.

It must have taken quite a bit of wheedling and negotiation, but the King allowed them to join the crowds in front of the palace. They were accompanied by two guards officers, their French governess Madame deBellaigue and their Uncle David Bowes-Lyon. They danced with the others and knocked hats off people. At one point the crowd started shouting that they wanted the King, but the King and Queen did not come out on the balcony. The girls sent a note into the palace asking if their parents could possibly come out again. They did and the crowd went wild. Both the Queen and Princess Margaret in separate interviews said it had been one of the most magical evenings of their lives.

22. What royal title did Princess Elizabeth's parents hold at the time of her birth?

From Quiz Early Life of Queen Elizabeth II

Answer: Duke and Duchess of York

Traditionally the second son of the monarch is given the title of Duke of York. With the coronation of King George VI, the dukedom went into abeyance until Prince Andrew, second son of Queen Elizabeth II, was granted the title in 1986.

23. Who were Her Majesty's parents?

From Quiz How much do you know about Elizabeth II?

Answer: Duke and Duchess of York

The Queen was born at 2.40am on 21 April 1926 at 17 Bruton Street in Mayfair, London W1. She was the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, who later became King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. At the time she stood third in line of succession to the throne after Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII), and her father, The Duke of York. But it was not expected that her father would become King, or that she would become Queen.

24. How old was Elizabeth when she became Queen?

From Quiz Elizabeth II

Answer: 25

Elizabeth became Queen in February of 1952. She turned 26 that same year on April 26. The first Queen Elizabeth was also 25 when she became Queen!

25. Where was Elizabeth II born?

From Quiz Queen Elizabeth II

Answer: 17 Bruton Street, Mayfair, London

17 Bruton Street was her parents' home until they moved to 145 Piccadilly shortly after her birth. Windsor Castle is the monarch's country home just outside London. Buckingham Palace is the monarch's official London residence.

26. Queen Elizabeth was known for her constant support and patronage of the military. In which military branch did she briefly serve during World War II?

From Quiz The Queen of Our Lives

Answer: Auxiliary Territorial Service

Princess Elizabeth was a member of the Auxiliary Territorial Service from February 1945 until the end of the war. She trained in mechanics and auto driving, eventually reaching the rank of honorary junior commander. This is possibly the lowest military rank with which she was associated during her life!

27. What honor did Queen Elizabeth II bestow on Sir Paul McCartney and all The Beatles on October 26, 1965?

From Quiz Remembering The Queen

Answer: Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire

This was quite a break from the norm by Queen Elizabeth, as the Order of the British Empire, or MBE, was typically reserved for military veterans and government leaders. When Prime Minister Harold McMillan nominated The Beatles, there was quite a bit of nay saying taking place, and the Beatles themselves thought it was a joke at first. While it is considered a prestigious honor, the MBE is the lowest rank of knighthood awarded in the UK. It was first used by King George IV in 1917. Although Queen Elizabeth II really never gave an opinion about much of anything, she had to have known that The Beatles were a bit of a cultural icon, and eventually all of them agreed to accept the award. Many of the conservatives who had already received the award, however, returned theirs in disgust.

28. "of the United Kingdom" - The modern United Kingdom, with four constituent countries, was founded in 1801 through the union of three historic kingdoms in the British Isles. Which of the four constituents was never a kingdom in its own right?

From Quiz The Queen's Title

Answer: Wales

Although in its history Wales had been independent, although it had rarely been a single nation. Instead, it had usually been formed of a number of smaller states, ruled over by an Overlord who was usually the most powerful of the Welsh rulers at the time. This ruler usually adopted the title "Tywysog Cymru", which translates as "Prince of Wales". Until the late 13th century, this title was recognised by the English king, on the proviso that Wales itself submitted to the overlordship of England. In 1274 however, tensions arose between King Edward I of England and Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, the Prince of Wales, which led to England invading Wales. Over the course of two campaigns, in 1277 and then 1282-83, England overran Wales, as well as the other small principalities within its borders, and incorporated the territory as part of England. The title "Prince of Wales" was then adopted Edward I and given to his eldest son, with the tradition retained that the eldest son of the reigning monarch is styled as Prince of Wales. Wales itself was fully incorporated into England, with the extension of English laws to Wales, by the Laws in Wales Acts 1535 and 1542, which effectively made England and Wales into a single state.

29. What is the last name of the descendants of Elizabeth II and Prince Philip?

From Quiz God Save the Queen! Elizabeth II

Answer: Mountbatten-Windsor

According to royal.gov.uk: "For the most part, members of the Royal Family who are entitled to the style and dignity of HRH Prince or Princess do not need a surname, but if at any time any of them do need a surname (such as upon marriage), that surname is Mountbatten-Windsor. The surname Mountbatten-Windsor first appeared ... in 1973, in the marriage register for the marriage of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips. Unless The Prince of Wales chooses to alter the present decisions when he becomes king, he will continue to be of the House of Windsor and his grandchildren will use the surname Mountbatten-Windsor."

30. Who was the father of Queen Elizabeth II?

From Quiz Do You Know Queen Elizabeth II?

Answer: King George VI

Queen Elizabeth II was the oldest daughter of King George VI, who was the second-eldest son of George V, and of Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, who became Queen Elizabeth and then the Queen Mother after the then Princess Elizabeth ascended the throne.
