The Queen

Her Majesty came to their nearest town, so they went to see her.  
They waved the Union flag, listened to the band and sang God Save The Queen.   The atmosphere was uplifting.  They felt proud to be British.
Resplendent in lilac she gave a regal waved and smiled at the crowds. 
A sea of red, white and blue fluttering in the breeze.

Fantastic! It takes me back to the Silver Jubilee - I was one of those flag-waving children (in Brownie uniform, personally)... Thanks for your comments about all my maps, vintage and piratical!

This must have been so exciting! The queen looks beautiful in her lilac coat....She looks a lot like her mother wearing pastel colours.

Happy weekend!

Lovely pictures of the Queen and everyone looks thrilled to see her.I went to see her in the 1980's when she came to Wakefield, a very amazing lady.
