The Queen held the titles Supreme Governor of the Church of England and Defender of the Faith, but she had a personal and lifelong Christian faith that she often shared publicly. Here are some of the things she said about it over the years.
21st birthday address, 1947
“I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong. But I shall not have strength to carry out this resolution alone unless you join it with me, as I now invite you to do: I know that your support will be unfailingly given. God help me to make good my vow, and God bless all of you who are willing to share it.”
