Queen Elizabeth II turned 90 just recently.
We watched a very good documentary last night on CBC TV
about her life from the beginning to now.
I recommend it if you haven't seen it
and if you like this sort of thing.
I feel I grew up with her two oldest kids, Prince Charles and Princess Anne.
We are the same age, Charles and I, and I felt 'connected' in a way....
even though our lives couldn't have been more different.
I think the Queen is an incredible human being.......continuing to
engage herself with the duties she has had for so many years.
Yes she has 'help' and money to do all these things very efficiently,
but think about it, her schedule is something that would make
anybody spin in their tracks.
A few people like to 'bash' the Royal Family,
I am not one of them.
I have this framed print at the shop when the Queen was very young.
