remembering the queen mum

on the anniversary of the beloved dowager queen’s death, let’s revel in the good times past:

 the Duke & Duchess of York 1927.

 mother-and-daughter both hail in new coronation halos, 1937.

 marriage of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon to Prince Albert, Duke of York, April 23, 1923. Lady Elizabeth became the trendiest princess with this “statement” wedding gown.

It was passed on to Princess Margaret, Viscountess Linley and most recently Kate Middleclass, Duchess of Cambridge.

    I watch her funeral procession, from time to time, on the internet. Is that weird, or what?
