Queen Elizabeth II held power in a ‘man’s world’

Queen Elizabeth II ascended the throne at a time when it was “a very masculine world”, says HELLO! Royal Editor Emily Nash.

“It was truly a man’s world back when the Queen ascended the throne and was crowned,” she said.

“And she was a 26-year-old woman, you can’t imagine how difficult it must have been for her to come in and have authority over these much older men.”
