* she traveled to over 116 countries
* while on her foreign tour she has received 2 tortoises, 1 seven year old bull elephant named "Jumbo", 2 black beavers - umm cute puppies weren't available???
* some people like to say they invented reality TV, but they didn't. It was really the Queen in 1969 she had a whole year of the royal family's life taped and shown to the public as a film
* Her Majesty owns 3 corgis now (they have their own Corgi Room and the menu is selected daily) and introduced a new breed of dog the "dorgi". I guess they do exist! It happened when her corgi mated with a dachshund. Since then a total of 11 dorgis have come and gone.
It appears that the Queen also has a favorite tiara. After so many years it still looks amazing. (I'm secretly hoping this one would go to Kate Middleton aka Princess Kate)
I love that she carries her own umbrella...yea Diddy i'm talking to you
I would love to by a fly on the wall in THAT jewelry vault
