When you think of Queen Elizabeth, what are the first things that come to mind? Elegant, regal, graceful, beautiful, and kind are just a few words that instantly bring her to my mind. She reigns like no other, and the world admires her every move.
As much information that is available at our fingertips, we feel as though we know everything about Her Majesty. We know her likes, dislikes, places she’s traveled, detailed information about her past.
One thing that might come as a surprise to you is one of her hidden talents. Believe it or not, the Queen is a rather handy mechanic!
When she was a mere 16 years old, she was interested in joining the women’s armed forces. Against her father’s better judgment, he reluctantly allowed her to do so. During her time there, she learned how to work on engines, change tires, and operate various emergency vehicles.
This knowledge gives us one extra reason to love and adore the marvelous Queen. This just goes to show you that just because they’re in the spotlight, there’s more to the Royal family than we might know!
