God Save the Queen
First of all, I must apologize to the Queen for not sending my best wishers earlier, but congratulations are in order to Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen is celebrating 60 years on the throne. Amazing.
Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were part of the pageant flotilla on the Thames River in London the other day. Seriously, Kate, you look fabulous.
And here's quite a gathering. Queen Elizabeth chats with performers Elton John, Cliff Richard, Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones and Paul McCartney backstage at the concert celebrating her diamond jubilee. Love Tom Jones' expression. "Is that so, Liz?"
Look at this crowd on The Mall at Buckingham Palace during the Diamond Jubilee Concert. Say what they will about the monarchy; I venture to guess that the majority of Britains love their queen. And, yes, we Americans are enamored with her as well.
Cheers to you, Queen Elizabeth. Well done!
