Cheers to Queen Elizabeth on her Diamond Jubliee. She reigns with such poise and grace. I absolutely adore this picture above of the Queen when she took her first steps on British soil after her accession to the throne. The look on her face is of such enormity.
The images below are of the Queen's childhood and early life. I love how it they make the royal family look like they could be anyone's grandparents and relatives.
