It has been 20 years since Her Majesty’s mother, one of the most significant individuals in her life, died at the age of 101.

Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, also known as merely the Queen Mother, was considered warmly the matriarch of the British Royal Family throughout most of her more than 100-year existence.

Princess Margaret, the younger sister of Her Majesty, passed away on February 9, 2002, at the age of 71, less than two months before her passing. These consecutive defeats came before the Golden Jubilee that year, making 2002 both a dreadful year and a remarkable year for the Queen.

In 1923, Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon wed the Duke of York. When her husband was crowned King George VI in 1937, she was given the title Queen Elizabeth. She assumed the title of Queen Mother following the death of the King in 1952, and her eldest child succeeded her as Queen Elizabeth II.

She was known as Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother to avoid confusion with her daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, after King George VI’s death in 1952. Queen Elizabeth was well-liked by the public, receiving the moniker “Smiling Duchess” because of her persistent indomitable spirit. During World War II, she provided the British public with a lot of moral support.

Up until the age of 8, Elizabeth was educated at home by governesses before starting to attend private schools in London. At age 13, she successfully completed the Oxford Local Examination.

While serving as the matriarch, she underwent an appendectomy, a colonoscopy, and surgery to remove a fishbone lodged in her throat.

She also endured successful surgery for a fractured clavicle, a cataract, and a hip replacement. The Queen Mother fell in December 2001 and shattered her pelvis at age 101. She recovered sufficiently to attend her late husband’s memorial funeral in February of the following year. Princess Margaret, her youngest child, passed away on February 9, 2002, at 71. The Queen Mother managed to make it to Margaret’s funeral despite slipping and hurting her arm a few days after she passed away.

Elizabeth passed away peacefully in her sleep at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park on March 30, 2002, at 15:15 (GMT), with her surviving daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, by her side. Her chest cold had been bothering her for the previous four months.

Prior to Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester, who died at age 102, the queen mother held the record for surviving the longest of any member of the British royal family at the time of her death.
