Queen Elizabeth II - Committed Christian, Dies at 96 - End of an Era
Everything you need to know about her life, succession, and funeral arrangements in graphic form
Britain's smiling Queen, a committed Christian, has died at 96, ending a 70 year reign, and an era.
Throughout her life, Queen Elizabeth II held her Christian faith dear after first attending church with her parents, the Queen Mother and King George VI, as a child - and she once said her religion was 'an inspiration an anchor’ during her reign.
During 70 years of her reign, the Queen's Christmas Day speeches invoked Biblical references to the story of the birth of Christ, as well as other stories including the Good Samaritan.
Her faith brought her much needed strength after the passing of her beloved husband - Prince Phillip in 2021.
Of note, the Queen was particularly fond of President Ronald Reagan and their shared love of horses and the outdoors.
Much is being written about her, but here is a significant amount of information on her, and her funeral arrangements, in graphic form.
