long live the queen!

Sixty years ago on this very day, Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne. She was just twenty-five years old – can you even imagine?! To read up on how the royals plan to celebrate Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubliee, click here. If only I were in Europe to partake in the festivities! I guess une petite glass of champagne post-work will have to do. Or maybe I'll throw on a tiara whilst doing the laundry. How will you be celebrating?

Thank you for sharing this tidbit of history. I am an unabashed Anglophile and loved the photos. (Am also a huge Queen Elizabeth II fan.) You've inspired me to hit the history books!

Lovely photos but I have to point out that the top photo is not Queen Elizabeth II but her sister Princess Margaret.
