Has Queen Elizabeth II, whether she was Princess or Queen, ever written her own speech?

I doubt it.

Even the now "iconic" speech she gave whilst in Africa to be of service as long as she shall live or what the wording was, was written by someone else, and they at the time didn't think or realize what impact those words would have down the line.

Even if she's written a speech on her own, I bet it needs approval from others, to be sure it's perfect (non-political and all that).

I don't think any monarchs write their own speeches. Even Charles as POW has a team of aides to do research for him. If anything is wrong he can blame them. However, sovereigns as Head of State have to get all facts and nuances absolutely correct in speeches or there could be national or international consequences.
