“What a life one lives”

The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations have officially started and since I think she’s rather marvelous, I thought I’d post a couple of pictures of her today:

Her Majesty married Phillip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh on November 20, 1947

I love this comparison photo, they look just the same together, and considering they have lived the most extraordinary lives (the title of this post is a quote from her), under huge pressure and public scrutiny, it is lovely to see them still happy together.
