Default Things Named After The Current Queen

I do not know much about the present Queen. I know she was born in Mayfair because I have seen the building. I was wondering how many things in England have been named after that woman, and I was surprised at how many it was. Is it general obsequiousness that causes this? They do the same thing in North Korea.

I have no objection to naming things after the Queen, but I still
wish that Crossrail had not been renamed.

Picking just one:

England: Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn


That's named after her mother.

To even the score, there's Elizabeth Way (an early 1970's inner ring
road) in Cambridge, named after her.

I dare say some of those without an explicit II may have been named after
previous Queen Elizabeths. In any case, she's been monarch for well over 60
years, and a lot of stuff has been built in thst time.

And, is the new HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier not on the list?

No that one's named after her mother

However the Queen's building at the University of East Anglia is named after
Elizabeth II, she opened it in the 90s (before 96 as that's when I started
there)

Which presumably will become the King's (or President's) Gallery, at some point in
the future.

Just as around 1700 Queen's Counsel will become King's Counsel,
at around the same time.
