:happydancing:

The Queen has two Birthdays. Her REAL Birthday (which is today) and is not celebrated by the Nation. And a National Birthday sometime later in June.

She is Eighty-Three years old today :)

So I thought I'd celebrate :happydancing:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lh1-9ww_HmM (Elizabeth reflects on her Life, what it is to be a Monarch, How to entertain guests, how to treat people in the correct manner, listen to her, her attitude might suprise you. Did you know that Her Majesty enjoys FARMING as a passtime? She LOVES Horse racing also :w00t: )

which is why she would treat you as a guest, and get out her best crockery for your arrival.

She says so in the first video :)

Then why didn't you refer to her as Queen Elizabeth II? There was another thread where you mentioned King Henry as King Henry VIII :laugh:

I dont think so.

The power flows down Elizabeth<ABC<Ebor<+London<Bishops

:) Out of Interest did you know that there was a GEOGRAPHICAL Third Province? It was going to be at a place Called "Deva" Which is the Roman Term for the Fortress that stood on the edge of the Empire at Chester, and sent up the bricks north to build Hadrians Wall, litterally a coast to coast wall between England and Scotland. It was manned by the Twentieth Legion of Rome.

But the Cathedral itself was at Litchfield I believe...it didnt last as a Province for very long. Infact, although the Bishop was made Archbishop momentarily...York was made Archbishop instead.

True class.

Seriously, the few Brits I know that lived through the blitz say that the fact that Elizabeth stayed in London was very important. Anyway she is a very classy lady and reminds me a lot of my mom.:)

I think your thinking of Elizabeth...as in the Queen Mother, She was Queen, but never actually rulled, because she married into the Royals, by wedding the King....this shows her on the topic you mention...the war, bombing and her refusal to leave http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFr5iNg7fPY She actually talks to you on this video about what made her choose to stay when the palace was actually bombed....Thats Elizabeths Mother (also called Elizabeth :laugh: ) "I'm glad we've been bombed, now I can look the east end in the face" Mother and Daughter, sound, and look very much alike dont they?

The Royal Family were advised to leave London during the Bombing Campaigns as they mainly targetted cities, and specifically important buildings within them.

Queen Elizabeth (The Queens Mother...so she was only Queen Dowerger, this means she never rulled, Her Husband rulled...thats why she's technically Elizabeth 1.5 :laugh: ) Decided that the Family would not be moving anywhere, and her Daughter Elizabeth The Second agreed :)

It gets confusing...so Queen Elizabeth The First was the person who built the Empire and solidified the Reformation. Queen Elizabeth (Dowerger), never rulled, but married a King and is more often known as "The Queen Mother" and her Daughter is Queen Elizabeth The Second.

Queen Elizabeth (Dowerger) died back in 2002 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtFioVh74lE

outside of Diana she was most definately the best loved Royal of the modern and post modern era, and lived to about 102 years old :happydancing:

:sad: Yes...I'm so sorry. Elizabeth the Queen Mother died back in 2002. She is greatly missed by those who consider themselves Royalist. :unsure-1:

She had a beautiful Funeral though...I enclose for you the bit where the Garter makes the official proclaimation that she (and it gives her FULL Title...which...is extremely loooooong) has died.

"Thus it hath pleased Almighty GOD to call out of this transitory life....." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_rwBdVheMI :sad:

Most people in the UK dont really care...I mean IF they celebrate the Queens Birthday, they Celebrate it on the Monarchy Birthday in late summer...not her actual biological Birthday.
