diamond jubilee

This year marks Queen Elizabeth II's 60th year on the throne and Britain is celebrating accordingly. She is the second longest reigning British monarch behind Queen Victoria, who reigned for 63 years and 7 months. It must help when no one is trying to murder you and take your throne.

Here are some nostalgic photos of my close encounters with the Queenie on her visit for Cambridge's 800th Anniversary (and a painting I did afterwards). If you look closely on the second photo you can see me reflected in her Queen-car (taking a picture of course). I circled myself for ease of viewing.

God save the Queen!

Ha ha! Love your analysis of why she has had such a long reign. :)
