Description

Placid, milky blue eyes gaze forward from this young woman's face, framed by carefully styled tresses the color of a chocolate candy bar. With her flawlessly smooth oval face (with an equally flawless aquiline nose) and the single pearl necklace that hangs 'round her neck, it is clear to any student of peerage that she is of noble birth, and obvious to all the rest that she is at the least a girl who comes from wealth. But Princess? Well, you'd have to be a person of some means and time, likely, to realize that without a moment's thought. The blue and white gingham dress she wears is bespoke, to be sure, perfectly fitting a slim young woman of average height — but its lines are simple and the fabric quality but not ostentatious.

Her voice may be more familiar, however. The soft and delicate nasal tones of a girl entering puberty are magnified by the expectations of formal etiquette and the received pronunciation, and it is a voice familiar to many who have listened to the muggle radio in the last year.

Background

As the first child of the youngest generation of British royalty, and as daughter to a beloved couple, Princess Elizabeth's birth on the 21st of April, 1926, generated significant news throughout the Empire — but few expected she would ever be in the position of heir presumptive, and easily within the living memory of subjects of the last Queen Regnant, Victoria. As with many aristocratic children before her, her parents often left the day-to-day upbringing of Elizabeth and her sister to nannies and relatives, but the family was close nevertheless.

From the start, the young princesses received a rigorous and privileged education; their grandmother introduced them to fine culture and museums early on, they received private tutelage from heads of great educational institutions and were instructed in language by well-trained native speakers, and special chapters of the muggle 'Girl Guides' were created to ensure they were socialized appropriately among children of mixed birth; when her father ascended to the throne, no changes in discipline had to be made to start preparing Elizabeth for the role of the heir presumptive.

Elizabeth's teen years have unfortunately coincided with the return of a world war among the muggles, but in the British public's estimation, she has risen to the challenge. As with the rest of the royal family, she chose not to evacuate Britain despite the ever-intensifying bombing of London, and followed the example of her mother as a young woman. Elizabeth has turned her attention to raising the morale of the people. In 1940, she delivered a speech to all the muggle children of England, imploring them not to be frightened, and began fundraising at Windsor Castle for military fabrics.
