Pink Saturday Happy Birthday to a Queen!

It's Pink Saturday with How Sweet The Sound and Saturday April 21st is a birthday as well! 

Pretty in hot pink, Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21, 1926 although her birthday is usually officially celebrated on the first weekend in June. Hey...the weather is (usually) a bit better!

This photo, from the BBC archives, pictures the Princess Elizabeth at age 10 with little sister Margaret Rose and her parents King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

 Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne of England in 1952 upon the death of her father, so the first weekend in June of this year, 2012 is her Diamond Jubilee of 60 years on the throne.

So happy 86th birthday your majesty!

And congratulations on your Diamond Jubilee year!

In no way do I entertain the idea that I shall be queen - of Great Britain. No problem, I'm happy as queen of all I survey. But this woman does make me want to wear hats. KnowwhatImean?
