A Quiz for The Queen

Here in the UK we’ve had an extended bank holiday weekend to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. With televised events every day and street parties going on up and down the country, It’s been impossible to miss.

Where I live we’ve been planning our own street party for weeks.

Part of my role was to set a quiz, with questions connected with Her Majesty and the Jubilee. I thought I’d share it with you, so here it is!

1The Queen is our longest serving monarch. Who had the second longest reign?
2What is the chemical symbol for platinum?
3Where was Princess Elizabeth when she learned of her father’s death.
4What was Queen’s biggest-selling UK hit song?
5Who is 5th in line to the Throne after the Queen
6Who was Dookie?
7Who played the lead role in The Queen’s Gambit (award winning Netflix drama series)?
8Where exactly was The Queen born?
9Who had a hit with the song ‘Royals’ in 2013?
10How did The Queen ‘arrive’ at the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, surprising everyone?
11Who was the second actress to play The Queen in TV’s ‘The Crown’?
12If you wear purple with gold braid, red sleeves and a black hat, what is your job?
13What are The Queen’s middle names?
14Who designed Elizabeth’s wedding dress?
15When is the Queen’s actual birthday?
16What or who was ‘Burmese’?
17How many British prime ministers have there been during the Queen’s reign so far?
18What is Cullinan II and what is it part of ?
19The Queen’s coat of arms includes two animals. Which one is on the right of the shield?
20How many grandchildren does the Queen have?

I’ll post the answers later in the week. Enjoy!


I live in Northumberland, within sight of the sea and spend my time knitting, crocheting, sewing and trying my hand at different crafts. There's usually a story to share about the things I make.

    1. Best one was my neighbour’s West Highland White Terrier, Hettie, who was wearing a saddle and a model queen (complete with crown and jewels)riding on her back! It was a fun day.
