Vivat, Queen!

"I declare before you that my whole life will be devoted to serving you and our great empire, whether long or short."
Yesterday the author of this quote, Elizabeth II, who ruled the country for 70 years and became the longest reigning and oldest monarch in British history, passed away.
An incredible woman who was and will remain an icon in many ways and to many people. She loved corgis, horses, monochrome outfits, Dirty Martini cocktails, and her husband, Prince Philip, whom she met at age 13.
Only she could have starred in a commercial with Paddington Bear for the anniversary of her reign - everyone will remember this heartwarming tea party with marmalade sandwiches.
One can endlessly watch and remember Her Majesty, the model of poise and dignity in any situation.
