Our queen means a lot to me because she is part of our British history. Also I am proud to have a traditional royal family ,who are fair and follow the laws that are set. I also think think that having the longest female monarch running our country is truly amazing . Also I like the fact that other countries love our royal family and come and visits London's Buckingham palace.

. A lovely lady, who is friends with other countries. The Queen and the rest of the royal family are one of the biggest tourist attractions in Britain bringing money into the country.

. One of the biggest acheivements the queen has made is to be the longest female monach in the world. During the war she trained as a driver and mechanic.

. She is Head of State, Head of the Armed Forces, and Head of the Church of England. She represents the Nation. She does government duties, where she has to sign documents.

The Queen does not need to worry about governing the country, as she has a government to do this now, but she does have other important jobs such as important jobs behalf of the nation . As the head of states she often visits abroad. Many people think that in the UK the queen spends to much money on going. She also invites other world leaders to Great Britain.

The queens job: although the queen does not have control of the law she is the head of state and invites other world leaders to our country.

The queens greatest achievements: the queens greatest achievement is having 63 years on the throne and being the longest reigning monarch in British history. She had her golden jubilee on 2002 and her diamond jubilee on 2012.

What the queen means to me: I think it is awesome to have the longest reigning queen in the world.

The Queen's Role. Although the Queen is no longer responsible for governing the country, she carries out a great many important tasks on behalf of the nation. As Head of State, the Queen goes on official State visits abroad. She also invites other world leaders to come to the United Kingdom.

The Queen means a lot to me because she helps keep the country running

"November 20, 1947 - Princess Elizabeth marries Philip." This was an important day for her because lots of people come to greet her for getting married.
"February 6, 1952 -Elizabeth ascends to the throne."I think that it must of been a glorious day for the Queen because she took hold of the country.

November 24, 1992 " On this day there was a fire at Windsor Castle and this made the Queen upset."
2002-The Queen celebrates her 50th anniversary on the throne.

The Queens important to me because she looks after our
amazing country and makes it a better place for us.
Her achievements are that she has been the longest reigning British monarch and has brought a lot of visitors into Britain who are interested in our history. I think these achievements are very exiting because it means that more people get to see our wonderful country.
The Queens role is head of the state and head of the nation.
I think the Queens job is very important and hard.
