Elizabeth II and Churchill
Many Prime Ministers formed U.K. governments with Queen Elizabeth’s approval. One of the most noteworthy was Winston Churchill, a giant of British history. He famously led the nation through World War II and was one of the most inspiring PMs ever (via Global News).
Queen Elizabeth’s relationship with Churchill didn’t always run smoothly. But she gained the respect of the war veteran and mourned his death. It’s remarkable that she met him and even considered him a friend. Few modern leaders reached the same stature.
