HM Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022)

Buckingham Palace released this photo tonight.  It was taken by Ranald Mackechnie at Windsor in May as a part of a series of photos for the Platinum Jubilee.  She wore the aquamarine clips given to her on her 18th birthday by her parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

The Order of Service for the Funeral

“She’s got those wonderful blue eyes that when she smiles, they light up her whole face. I’ll always remember that smile, you know, that smile is unforgettable.”

What a glorious way to say good bye. The world yaps enough about the British Royal Crown, but stood in awe today witnessing what no other institution can pull off.

Without going back to watch the last scene with Queen Victoria in the miniseries Edward the King - I will do my best to remember, a commoner recognizes the queen in her old age and yells "get on ole girl" or hopefully something like that. That phrase applies today for HM Queen Elizabeth II, high praise indeed. May you Rest In Peace.

God save the King.

PS - my father was a Canadian, born 2 weeks before the queen, he grew up having a crush on her.
