I am thankful for Queen Elizabeth II
I may be the oddball out in my generation, but I am a true monarchist. Â I remember as a child, my parents took me to Exhibition Stadium in Toronto to see the Queen. Â Shortly after I was married I went downtown Ottawa to see Prince Charles. Â In fact I was panicked because I was running late. Â No need to worry, instead of stadiums, I was standing in a meager crowd only 2 people deep.
I personally find it quite disappointing that we, as members of the commonwealth, seem to have forgotten that these human beings, through birth – not choice – live their entire lives in service to us. Â They are scheduled according to us, paraded around, sent on endless travels (which as great as it sounds, trust me, is exhausting), and required to attend numerous events.
I am proud of how Queen Elizabeth has carried herself, while still maintaining a precious family life. Â Too bad she never had a mom blog – bet it would be amazing!
