‘Never expected she'd be Queen’ Royal family release sweet baby pic to mark 96th birthday

News‘Never expected she'd be Queen’ Royal family release sweet baby pic to mark 96th birthday

Royal fans were sent into a frenzy as the Royal Family Twitter account shared a rare picture of the sovereign dating back to 1928. The sepia-coloured snap shows Princess Elizabeth, two, lying on her front and looking ahead with a cheeky smile. 

At the time, Elizabeth was not in the direct line to the throne.

As noted by the message shared by the royal account, the princess was not born with the expectation to be one day crowned Queen.

The tweet read: “Happy Birthday Your Majesty!

“Today as The Queen turns 96, we’re sharing this photograph of the young Princess Elizabeth aged two. 

“Then, in 1928, it was never expected she would be Queen, and this year Her Majesty is celebrating her #PlatinumJubilee – a first in British history.”

Born as the first daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York, Elizabeth abruptly became the heir presumptive to the throne in December 1936, when her uncle King Edward VIII abdicated to marry American socialite Wallis Simpson and her father acceded to the throne as King George VI.

Following the birthday message on Twitter, many royal fans joined in the celebrations for Her Majesty and wished her a happy birthday.

Replying to the tweet, social media user @team_giudice wrote: “Three Cheers for The Queen on her 96th birthday.

And another, @MeowReveal, added: “Happy birthday Your Majesty! Thank you for everything you have done for our country.”
