Sapphire Jubilee

16425794_1375243522546977_1168419084776349646_nToday, Queen Elizabeth II truly stands alone in history. She is the first, and only, British monarch to reach her Sapphire Jubilee – 65 years on the throne.

She ascended to the throne 6 February 1952 upon the death of her father, who had himself become king upon the death of his father, George V and abdication of the throne by her uncle, Edward VIII. She has witnessed many leadership changes within her own country and throughout the world and has remained the figurehead of the Commonwealth. She’s borne witness to many wars and other military conflicts through out her lifetime and reign.

For my part I think she’s the most smartly dressed woman of her age I’ve ever seen. There doesn’t seem to be any colour she looks bad wearing.
