This morning marked the end of an era. We awoke to the news that Queen Elizabeth, affectionately known as “Liz” here in Australia, had died. I like to think that Philip was waiting at the pearly gates, tapping his foot, asking ‘what took you so long’?
The cheeky side of me likes to think that Henry the Eighth greeted her with ‘what, only one husband’? and that Queen Victoria is not speaking to her because she out-reigned her.
The very naughty side of me likes to think Diana was there, arms folded, stern of face, saying ‘we need to talk’. Whatever you think of the Royals there is no doubt that Elizabeth II was a remarkable woman. I think she deserves a well-earned rest don’t you?
Take care, love to all, toni xx
