Queen Elizabeth II

Where was Queen Elizabeth II Born?

Her Majesty The Queen is a Mayfairian.

Without doubt a Mayfair girl, HRH The Queen came into the World at 2.40 am (GMT) on 21 April 1926 at her maternal grandfather’s London house: at 17 Bruton Street, Mayfair.

Queen Elizabeth II

Since then she has never lived far from Mayfair and still does most of her grocery shopping at Fortnum & Masons.

Winston Churchill said of the two year old Elizabeth that she was “a character. She has an air of authority and reflectiveness astonishing in an infant.” Churchill’s observations were incredibly astute as these qualities have always been central to the Queen that we know and love.
