Princess Elizabeth joined the Auxiliary Territorial Service during WWII where she was known as No 230873 Second Subaltern Elizabeth Windsor, and was trained as a driver. She was the first female member of the royal family to actually serve in the military.

 

Elizabeth married Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh, on 20 November 1947. The Duke is Queen Elizabeth's third cousin. They share Queen Victoria as a great-great-grandmother.

 

Elizabeth became the Queen upon the death of her father on 6 February 1952.
