I like Queen Elizabeth II. She reminds my of my Grandma who funnily enough copied my name, Claire.
My Grandma was definately a fan.  I once worked at an event attended by the Queen and told my Grandma she instantly stopped what she was doing and asked me what the Queen wore. My dad met the Queen and I know she was instantly interested.
The Queen named her Corgi Susan and my Aunty has the same name, surely that is no co-incidence.
My Grandma didn't live in London but in Shropshire and wore wellies and heads scarves just like Her Majesty.She had hair like her and glasses. She wore the same clothes and read HELLO.

I love seeing the Queen in her Imperialist form from the 1950's and I like to see her using everyday items, like a mobile phone, camera, eating a sandwich.
She's got her own website stashed with facts. In my latest research I found out Princess Ann's dog attacked and killed a Corgi. The Queen has also clubbed to death a bird (to put it out of its misery) that got half munched by a dog when she was out walking.
Next, I'm going to write her a letter.
