Today in 1952 we lost a king and gained a queen.
For many of us, she is the only monarch we have ever known.
Sixty years, sixty diamond years.
She wasn’t born to be our queen, wasn’t born to be anything more than Princess Elizabeth. And here we are, not remembering any other monarch than she. I’d say that’s a job well done.
Long live the queen.
Elizabeth II is only the sixth crowned Queen of England. The other five are Mary I, Elizabeth I, Mary II, Anne, and Victoria.
