  Queen Elizabeth’s Story Is More Tragic Than People Know Queen Elizabeth’s Story Is More Tragic Than People KnowMost of us know her simply as “The Queen,” but she was born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor on April 21, 1926. At the time of her birth, her paternal grandfather George V was king, and her father was his second son. This meant that she was third in line for the throne—and unlikely to ever come close to it. Well, fate had something different in mind.

President Joe Biden on Sunday paid his respects to Queen Elizabeth II by visiting her coffin at Westminster Hall in London.

Her title is different than that of the reining monarch.The late monarch died peacefully on Thursday at Balmoral Castle, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.

The president said afterward that Queen Elizabeth reminded him of his mother, according to The Washington Post, which reports that Biden referenced “the way she had that look, like, ‘are you okay?’”

He also called it “an honor” to meet the queen, whose death ended her record-setting 70-year-old monarchy.

Biden is one of about 2,000 people expected to attend a funeral service Monday at nearby Westminster Abbey.
