  • She wore braces on her teeth

Her Majesty, The Queen Elizabeth II reveals the secret to her famous smile. She shares that once upon a time she wore braces on her teeth. She paid a visit to the new Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals on Wednesday 19th February 2020 where she chatted with some children being fitted for braces.

  • She Didn’t Have A Passport

I learnt that when you’re the Queen of England, things like passports don’t matter. The reason is all British passports are issued in the name of Her Majesty, so according to the British Monarchy “it is unnecessary for The Queen to possess one.” Elizabeth was also exempt from having a driver’s license

  • The Queen Had Been Driving For 70 Years!

Queen Elizabeth II learned to drive in 1945, and was often seen driving her royal Range Rover around England!

During World War II the Queen wasn’t driving a posh Range Rover, she was sitting behind the wheel of a truck! Fact: Elizabeth donned a pair of coveralls and trained in London as a mechanic and military truck driver.

  • Elizabeth II The Only Female Royal to Join the Army

Queen Elizabeth II may have looked frail in her later years but she was very mobile back in the day when she joined the army, landing her the title of being the only female member of the royal family to have entered the armed forces.

  • Her Guilty Pleasure Was ‘Downton Abbey’

It may not come as a surprise that the Queen of England loved one of the country’s most successful TV shows. The Queen watched the show so closely that she was able to find faults in some of the episodes. According to a source, “The Queen did notice on one episode that there was a young so-called British officer wearing medals which had not been awarded when he was supposed to be alive.”

  • Elizabeth Celebrated Two Birthdays

Although Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday is April 21, she also celebrated her birthday day in June where she was joined by the whole Royal Family.

#BlackIsKing :Beyoncé Flexes her New Visual Album ‘Already’ (Video)

Published

on

Early Friday morning (July 31), fans joyously unwrapped Beyoncé’s visual album Black Is King on Disney+.

Designed to be a re-imagination of the 2019 film The Lion King, Queen Bey looks to recreate the Black experience, mainly for young African American boys and girls on the project.

Studded with an army of talented dancers, actors and famous guest stars, Beyoncé’s passion project is a crystal-clear illumination of the importance of Black pride and excellence.

Beyoncé’s Black Is King is roaring into existence with a little help from a ferocious music video.

After dropping her new visual album Friday morning on Disney+, the icon released an accompanying clip of the project’s tune “Already” featuring Major Lazer and Shatta Wale.

The video sees Beyoncé shifting from stylized indoor locales to sprawling outdoor environments, including a scene where she’s perched in a tree covered in vivid body paint.

“Already” originally appeared on Beyoncé’s 2019 album The Lion King: The Gift, which the singer created with inspiration from Disney’s photorealistic remake — for which Beyoncé also voices a character — of the classic 1994 animated feature.

In addition to new music, Black Is King also features guest appearances by Lupita Nyong’o, Naomi Campbell, Kelly Rowland, and Jay-Z, and tells a re-imagined version of The Lion King‘s narrative focused on communicating lessons “for today’s young kings and queens” to absorb.

Watching ‘Black Is King’ film, you would learn how Beyoncé Gives Hope to Young Black Kings:

Her words of affirmation: “If you think you are insignificant, you better think again,” “you’re part of something way bigger” and “we are winners” are poignant and vital to Blacks who have been scarred by the claws of racial injustice and prejudice.

She also stated that “Black Is Regal & The Star Power Proves It.” With Beyoncé dictating the tempo, Queen B enlisted a bevy of superstar talent to anchor her visual album.

However, The biggest gem proves to be “Brown Skin Girl” with star cameos led by Naomi Campbell, Lupita Nyong’o, and Beyoncé’s daughters, Blue Ivy and Rumi.

Beyoncé didn’t hold back in spreading the wealth in terms of locations. The iconic singer travelled to Belgium, West Africa, London, New York and Los Angeles to helm her hour-plus long film.

The singer even shot some vibrant scenes right at home. “It all started in my backyard,” she told GMA. “So from my house to Johannesburg, to Ghana, to London, to Belgium, to the Grand Canyon, it was truly a journey to bring this film to life.”

The film ‘Black Is King’  portrays the Values the Essential Black Community holds. The 90-minute film masterfully exudes the importance of family, female empowerment, self-identity, beauty and more.

The striking re-imagination is noble, as Beyoncé and company attempt to remedy the numerous tragedies endured by Blacks, specifically when it comes to police brutality.

By pouring out uplifting messages throughout the film, BIK is a sincere reminder that no battle can drown the swagger and confidence of Blacks in America.

With songs like “Freedom” and “Formation” at her disposal, Bey valiantly sacked the issues of police brutality and praised the valor of African American women.
