Congratulations to her majesty! I'd treat her to tea and eye candy viewing at one of our local coffee shops, but something tells me she'd decline. So proper!

Wow what a wonder. Her mother lived for a very long time so the Queen may have many more years on the throne.The Queen Mother lived until the age of 102.

I have thought many times of writing to Her Majesty due to the uncanny resemblance between her and my late Mom. Their eyebrows differ but their noses are absolutely identical. Hard to find the best photo to really show it.

They were all over Thew King's Speech. My Father's family was from England and he was a stutterer. Do you suppose? It could be Tim and I are related to the Queen and each other.
