That old lady could shoot both rifle and shotgun better thank most on this board and she could definitely ride a horse better than almost anyone you know.

I imagine if she could have, she would have rather been some moderately well off country gentry than a queen, but God had other plans. For someone who was not born to be queen and only ruled by accident of history, she did a good job as far as anyone can tell. Any parent should know better than to criticize her for the actions of her children. Many of us have done far worse with far fewer challenges. In any case, good or bad, she is gone on to her reward now.

She raised and trained Labrador retrievers. In her later years, she didn't shoot, but her husband did. He did the shooting while she worked the dogs. When a dog brought a live bird to her, she'd personally wring it's neck.

That look that says "Yes darling, that's the Queen holding you. "

I like this post. I will add she's hunted the tiger..

Frilly hat, frock, and pearls. "Why of course, I'd love to do some shooting."

I *DO* remember Aunty June saying that it was Elizabeth that cleaned up the blood and feces in the back.

Combined with the info from the above pictures, I'm sad she has died.

The current royals are a far cry... Meghan Markle being the low point IMNSHO. Thanks, California! eek blush

Megan Markle is the low point, period.

Her sons and grandkids like to shoot and hunt in a country that is mostly anti guns and anti hunting. That says something good about her.

She was a class act in my opinion. She did a tough job for 70 years without scandal. The whole Megan thing could have blown up much worse. The queen knew it was all bigger than her.

She was quite a lady and doesn’t deserve the bile many have put on her. She led a very long and eventful life very successfully. May she Rest In Peace.

That picture of the Shah Pahlavi of Iran is iconic. Wonder how relations with Iran would be if Carter hadn’t thrown him overboard.

Some drunken history concerning dates and time frames of events on this and other threads.

Things that could not have happened unless she had her own personal time machine...


I wont bother with laying out a sequence of events to prove.

I'm being kind...

A lot of the Royals can't handle the discipline and structure that's expected of them and opt out. Queen Elizabeth's Uncle, Edward lasted less than a year as King before he abdicated the throne and bailed.

Queen Elizabeth took it on at a young age and maintained it for her whole life. Obviously, it provided her with an opulent life. But she would have had that anyway.

I respect her for having the discipline to maintain the tradition in such a classy manner. The position has a lot of perks to say the least. But it also requires a type of sacrifice that very few people will experience.
