King George VI
When the queen assumed reign over her kingdom, things couldn’t have been worse for her. She was already facing a ton of stress from her royal duties, but the shock of wearing the crown during such a devastating time in her life nearly pushed her over the edge.
Being a member of the royal family is a lot different from being the queen. First of all, she had to accept the responsibilities from her father, King George VI, who had reigned for a mere 15 years. Upon his untimely death, Queen Elizabeth II had no choice but to step up while also mourning the loss of her beloved father.
