Bruton Street in London Mayfair has something Royal about itself, in fact, is the birthplace of Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, born at 17 Bruton Street, London, Great Britain, April 21, 1926.
The Queen was the first child of The Duke and Duchess of York, subsequently King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Five weeks later she christened Elizabeth Alexandra Mary in the chapel at Buckingham Palace. The Princess’s early years were spent at 145 Piccadilly, the London house taken by her parents shortly after her birth, then at White Lodge in Richmond Park and at the country homes of her grandparents, King George V and Queen Mary, and the Earl and Countess of Strathmore. When she was six years old, her parents took over Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park as their own country home.
