In this article I will be sharing with you some of the privileges enjoyed by her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, which there’s no any other person in the world that have enjoyed such privileges before.
Below are the 4 privileges that only Queen Elizabeth II, enjoy or benefits;
1. She Don’t Need Visa Or Passport to Travel to Any Country In the World
When traveling overseas, The Queen does not require a British passport. The cover of a British passport features the Royal Arms, and the first page contains another representation of the Arms, together with the following wording:
Her Britannic Majesty’s Secretary of State requests and requires in the name of Her Majesty all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary.
As a British passport is issued in the name of Her Majesty, it is unnecessary for the Queen to possess one.
2 She Doesn’t Need Driving License to Drive
Queen Elizabeth II “is the only person in Britain who can drive without a license or number plate on her state car.” That’s because, as Travel + Leisure points out, all driver’s licenses are issued in her name. The Sun notes that not having a driver’s license doesn’t keep the queen from driving.
She learned to drive at age 19 and continues to appear behind the wheel. The queen primarily drives around her private estates, not on the streets of London. And as Express notes, “Her passion for driving has been well documented over the years, with iconic photos capturing her prized Range Rover.”
But as the publication reports, “Protocol dictates that she’s normally chauffeured.” Queen Elizabeth is exempt from. Because all British licenses are also issued in her name, the Queen has no need for one in order to legally drive.
3 She’s Above the Law and She Can’t Be Sued to Court
the Queen also benefits from diplomatic immunity, meaning she can commit a crime just about anywhere in the world and get away with it! The sovereign immunity that the Queen benefits from even goes so far as to ensure that she cannot be subject to any civil proceedings, so she can’t be sued.

4 She Celebrate Her Birthday Twice In a Year
Queen Elizabeth, like many British monarchs before her, has two birthdays: the actual anniversary of the day she was born, and a separate day that is labeled her “official” birthday (usually the second Saturday in June). Why? Because April 21 is usually too cold for a proper parade. The reason for the second birthday has to do with the weather. Sovereigns whose real birthdays fall in colder months have often celebrated an official birthday on a different date in the hope of good weather for their birthday parade, known as the Trooping the Colour.
Trooping the Colour is a spectacular military parade held in central London every year to celebrate the Queen’s birthday with the British public. Huge crowds usually gather in central London to watch the spectacle at Horseguards parade. The Queen and other Royal Family members gather on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for the event.
The Queen has ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history, becoming a much loved and respected figure across the globe. Her extraordinary reign has seen her travel more widely than any other monarch, undertaking many historic overseas visits. Known for her sense of duty and her devotion to a life of service, she has been an important figurehead for the UK and the Commonwealth during times of enormous social change.
Her Majesty continues to carry out a full programme of engagements, from visits to charities and schools, to hosting visiting Heads of State, to leading the nation in Remembrance and celebratory events – all supported by other members of the Royal Family.
