"The Queen has shared memories of achieving her own lifesaving qualification aged 14 during a video call with the Royal Life Saving Society - before revealing she 'didn't realise' she was the first in the Commonwealth to do it.
The Society works across 30 Commonwealth nations with the aim of eliminating preventable death by drowning, promoting water safety, and delivering lifesaving and lifeguarding education.
In 1941, as Princess Elizabeth, Her Majesty, became the first young person in the Commonwealth to achieve the Society's Junior Respiration Award, providing an example to young people and helping to establish lifesaving and resuscitation qualifications across the network of nations.
The Queen, 95, recalled her memories of receiving the Award 80 years ago, telling the call participants: 'I didn't realise I was the first one - I just did it, and had to work very hard for it!'"
HM just amazes me, I didn't know of this award that she earned.
Drowning is still a huge global problem and we know Charlene of Monaco has focused on drowning prevention as well.
