10 Things Queen Elizabeth II Has Not Tried In Her Life

  1. She Never Went To School: But despite this – the Queen Elizabeth II is a very educated person. She was tutored privately along with her sister Princess Margaret, and there’s no doubt that their teachers were the best the country could provide. On top of that, the future Queen studied not only general subject, but also constitutional law and history; it was necessary to prepare her for her future role.

  2. The Queen Has Never Taken A Selfie: Yep, unfortunately, royal protocols don’t approve of this innocent hobby, and even though some people have probably taken selfies with members of the royal family in the background, Queen Elizabeth herself has never been in a selfie willingly.

  3. Her Majesty Has Never Gone Grocery Shopping: Grocery stores are seen as something unroyal, that’s why members of the royal family aren’t supposed to buy food on their own. All of the Queen’s drinks and dishes are prepared by skilled chefs.

  4. She’s Never Taken A Driving Test: But that doesn’t’ mean that the Queen can’t drive – oh, She CAN and DOES! In fact, she loves driving very much and is often seen behind the wheel of her favorite Range Rover, as for her driver’s license – Her Majesty is the only person in the UK who doesn’t need to have any documents to drive a car, she doesn’t even need a license plate because it’s part of her royal privileges.

  5. She’s Never Had a Social Media Account: And no wonder – members of the royal family or those married into the family don’t have a social media account, for example; after marrying prince Harry, Megan Markell deleted her personal Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts, anyway, if you want to be aware of the main events happening in the royal family you can follow the official Kensington palace twitter accounts and Instagram accounts (@kensingtonroyal) – but, try as you may you won’t find the Queen on any social media.

  6. The Queen Has Never Dated: Yep! Her Majesty was lucky enough to find her prince charming on her first try, she met Prince Philip when they were still children, but Princess Elizabeth fell in love with her future husband only sometimes later, when she was 13 years old, after meeting him on a tennis court. After that they began writing love letters to each other, an d in 1947 when Princess Elizabeth was 21 the happy couple finally got engaged, five months later they got married with 2,000 guest attending the ceremony.

  7. She’s Never Voted: But, it’s not like she isn’t allowed to vote, legally the Queen can vote in any elections or referendums. Her majesty just chooses not to – the thing is that she has to remain strictly neutral with respective politically matters, and she’s been following the Royal Protocol on this matter so far.

  8. The Queen Has Never Opened Her Presents on Christmas Day: Every year during the festive season, the royal family travels to the Queen Sandringham Estate in Norflok to celebrate the holidays there, but Her Majesty and her relatives open their presents on Christmas Eve instead of Christmas day. Queen Elizabeth’s father King George VI was the one who started this tradition.

  9. She Never Traveled Without a Pack of Her Own Blood: In fact, this is the habit of both Prince Philip and Prince Charles as well; this way if there’s a medical emergency – the Queen her consort and the heir to the British throne would be able to have a blood transfusion, besides they’ll be sure that the blood is free from any infection.

  10. Queen Elizabeth Has Never Had a Passport: But she can freely travel overseas – this paradox make sense when you think about the fact; that a British passport gets issues in the name of the Queen, that’s why the Queen herself doesn’t need one. So when the most traveled monarch in British history goes abroad; she just braces through customs and passport control, she doesn’t need to prove her identity to immigration officials or show any travel documents. As for other members of the royal family, they do have passports and show them while travelling abroad.
