Her Majesty The Queen
There are wonderful condolence messages being sent to the Royal Family at this time which is of course so very sad for them. We share in that grief – Her Majesty was a remarkable Queen and a lady worthy of great personal admiration.
One aspect of her life to which I would like to draw attention was the complex executive nature of her work combined with heavy travel commitments, daunting diary obligations, and being a mother of four children; not to mention constant pressure from the Press and Social Media and coping with painful family disappointments. This feels a very modern scenario.
An amazing lady – particlarly for one of her generation – a life more contemporary than might meet the eye, yet she maintained impeccable traditional values. May we learn from her example. I can think of no one who took the wartime slogan of “Keep Calm and Carry On” to greater heights.
I will miss you, Your Majesty.
Rest in Peace.
