Photos That Tell the Story of Queen Elizabeth’s Early Years

Born to be Queen

From serving in the army to playing with her dogs as a child, the photos that have been unearthed of Queen Elizabeth in her younger days are absolutely fascinating to behold. Queen Elizabeth II is probably one of the most photographed people in the world. Born in an age when photography was becoming more accessible, it was only natural that a Royal family would take advantage of the technology they had access to in order to document as many moments of their daughters’ lives as possible. Victoria may have ushered photography into the palace, but as the 20th century progressed, Elizabeth often found that photographers were taking too many liberties with her family.
