World War 2 Two II WW2 WWII

Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, passed away on the 30th March 2002. To celebrate her life and her contribution to the Second World War, a special page is being compiled. If you have any recollections of her during the war years, please fill in the form provided and you contribution will be added.

During the war the Queen felt it was her duty to help boost the nationís morale. To help raise peoplesí spirits, she made regular visits, with her husband the King, to the areas of the East End of London, which had been the focus of heavy bombardment from German Bombers. The royal couple also visited the heavily danaged areas of Coventry, Liverpool and many other cities.

Buckingham Palace was bombed during the Blitz, taking nine direct hits, The King and Queen had a narrow escape during the first raid as they were standing close to a window when the bomb fell. The attacks made the Queen feel closer to the people and the terrible times they were enduring. She declared that now the palace had been bombed too, she could "look the East End in the face".
