The Queen by Annigoni - previous pinner "I bought this postcard at Windsor in June 1972 when I queued to see the lying-in-state of the Duke of Windsor."
Queen Elizabeth II - I think there will always be something comforting about QEII. I'm not a monarchist, just an aussie girl. So maybe its because she has been there on the back of all our coins, maybe because her picture used to hang on the wall at school and at girl guides. She's always just been there... Weird, but true.
I believe that a crown can be considered a hat. As such, I give you Queen Elizabeth II in 1956. The crown is stunning.........and she wears them beautifully.......
