Britain’s longest reign – Queen Elizabeth II‘s record last week, on Sept 9th, at 5:30 PM She has other records too, and above all, a particular sense for colors! Let’s see her color chart?
Nearly my whole life I dedicated to British and American studies, with some degrees on that, the newest is Masters in British Education, Political and Economic affairs; so I want to pay my tribute to the record: Queen Elizabeth II is the longest monarch in British history, overcoming her great great-grandmother, Queen Victoria – 63 years and 216 days, in 1901. During the Queen’s reign she saw 12 British Prime Ministers, 7 Catholic popes and 12 American presidents.
21-year-old Princess Elizabeth on her British Commonwealth and Empire speech said: “I declare that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.” David Cameron led tributes to the Queen, saying “she has served this country with unfailing grace, dignity and decency; long may she reign“.
The Mirror says: “Dutiful, hard-working, cheerful and family-loving – and never without her handbag”. Yes, she is always with a black handbag Let’s see it and her love for bold colors!
The queen is no longer acquiring corgis (worried about falls, better not having dogs under foot). She has corgis since she was 18 (one went with the queen on her honeymoon).
“Inevitably, a long life can pass by many milestones. My own is no exception”, said the Queen. She has paid tribute to her husband in 1997 at their Golden Wedding anniversary: “He is someone who doesn’t take compliments easily, but he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years.”
Yes, long may she reign and wear the vivid colors that she loves so much!
Hope you all have a weekend full of smiles! THANK YOU so much for the sweet comments!
