1. When was Queen Elizabeth II born?

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.

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.
