'In 1945, the then Princess Elizabeth became the first female member of The Royal Family to serve as a full-time active member of the Armed Forces, when she joined the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS).

'As well as being Head of the Armed, Queen Elizabeth was also the wife, mother and grandmother of individuals who served in the Forces. Much of Her Majesty’s working life was spent meeting serving members of the Armed Forces and their families.
