A weekend of celebrations to mark our Queen’s 90th birthday.
We wish her a very Happy Birthday.
Great Britain has seen major changes in her time, the Commonwealth countries many of which have become independent still have links with the Queen, the Church of England has seen many changes and different archbishops, her own personal life has been fraught at times with difficulties, but has shone through as a family.
As an individual she has great character and remains at the head of all of that at 90.
I looked at her coronation speech and in it she says,
‘I have in sincerity pledged myself to your service, as so many of you are pledged to mine. Throughout all my life and with all my heart I shall strive to be worthy of your trust.’ Taken from the Queen’s Coronation Speech June 2nd 1953
That was 63 years ago. That is some life commitment to your work! No wonder Prince Harry suggests she should take a day off!
A time to share and to celebrate the life and work of Queen Elizabeth the Second.
