I'd quite like to borrow her jewellery collection....
Sx

Scarlet: I'd be happy just to see it all - sparkling - at leisure.

Granny Annie said...

"All that glitters is not gold" but it's hard to believe that Queen Elizabeth is not golden. She is loved world wide.

OldLady Of The Hills said...

What an acomplishment....60 years!
She is a pretty amazing person, isn't she?
I say CONGRATULATIONS...Long may she wave!

Pat said...

Granny Annie and Naomi: it gives me great pleasure that two American ladies can be so gracious about our Queen.

Yes she does !
Besides all her outstanding accomplishments, just look how beautiful she is.
I love the way she said once she like to wear bright colors so you can be able to see her when she is out and about.
I saw some photos from the River Thames Pageant, all the boats !
I loved the white hat and coat she wore.
What an amazing sight.

Happy Diamond Jubilee.

cheers, parsnip

I was following her River trip this mornning on our TV. The newspapers have good stuff on the Queen in blue at the races yesterday. Personally, only two generations removed, I'm a great fan.

Shame about the awful weather!

Lonely Rivers said...

Sixty years ago a mesmerized second grader sat with her classmates in the auditorium of a school in upstate NY, USA, and watched the coronation of the QUEEN on a tiny black and white TV.
It was magical beyond imagination and I have been a fan of (almost) all things Elizabeth since.

The Unbearable Banishment said...

Without my usual sarcasm and with all due sincerity, God Save the Queen!

Macy said...

Wow! We're really not feeling the jubilee up north! In fact I don't even have the day off Monday or Tuesday!
How did the scots ever get the reputation of being a bunch of joyless, dour spoilsports?

Pat said...

Parsnip: in all the hours on board she didn't sit down - amazing. I noticed she carried a cashmere shawl which ended up round her shoulders.

Mage: That is when she gets really excited - at the race course and she is incredibly knowledgable about the horses.

John: but that's what made it so very Brtish.

Lonely Rivers: that's lovely to hear. I expect - like me you feel you have grown up with her. Myself for over 80 years.

UB: bless you dear boy:)

Macy: and yet one of her favourite homes is in Scotland. I always think of her as British rather than English.

R. Sherman said...

Sorry if this is a double comment. Google keeps badgering me for my cell number.

Anyhoo, I am reminded of her poignant and understated grace during the "annus horribulus" some years back. She is quite remarkable and I wish her a long life.

Cheers.

Pat said...

Randall: yes life seems to have become much easier for her, over the last few years. Sadly Prince Phillip her husband had to miss the concert tonight as he is in hospital with a bladder infection.
She will miss him at the Church service tomorrow but I'm hoping it clears up quickly and he's back where he belongs - by her side.

She really is amazing and loved by all. God save the Queen!!

Pat said...

Judy: thank you Judy:)
