Found some cool videos of Queen Elizabeth II back in her days as the young Princess Elizabeth during World War 2... : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2grMaRttws

Her comforting speech to the British children during the difficult and turbulent times that were World War 2 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89CJ_8lqDdA

And all of this was when she was still just a teenager Princess!

I have had great admiration for this badass grandma since I was a child but I had no idea about her participation during World War II during her youth until after she died!

May this QUEEN rest in peace!

The fact that the Queen was a mechanic during the war, is why my parents were so supportive when, at 16 I started my training as a mechanic.

Those pictures of her working in the ATS were just what I was thinking of when reading about her giving Prince Abdullah a well deserved fright racing around Balmoral. Thanks for posting!

Love these, thank you for posting! I’d never seen the second video, found it very moving -what a life she had.
