What a lovely post! Yes, our Queen is a very special lady. Very well preserved too.

I've been fascinated by England's royal family for ages ...
Love her (or not!), she's quite the lady!

Those are the neatest pictures. Don't you wonder what she said that had Reagan laughing?

Hope you're healing well and feeling much better.

I never realized her reign had lasted through so many presidents and she is still going strong. It will certainly be an amazing transition the day that Prince William becomes king.

Wow, is right. I knew she had been around a long time, but those pictures really put it into perspective. I think she really has taken her role seriously in life and whatever you may think of the monarchy, you have to admire her ability to handle all that was expected of her in life!
