Queen Elizabeth II rose in the line of succession to the British throne courtesy of the decisions of her uncle, King Edward VIII. Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was the first born of the future King George VI. However, George VI was the second son of King George V, Elizabeth’s grandfather.
When King George V died, his first-born son, Edward, rose to the throne as King Edward VIII. However, he abdicated the throne to marry Wallis Simpson, a twice-divorced American socialite. As such, George VI rose to the throne and Elizabeth II suddenly became first in line to the throne behind her father. When he passed in February 1952, Elizabeth II became Queen of England at the age of 25.

The design includes the Queen wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
