60 years a Queen!

To live for 60 years is an accomplishment, no matter your job, family, and various vagaries the world hurls at us. But to be Queen of England, meeting the thousands of well-wishers, politicians, and god knows who else, it’s got to be exhausting and tedious after 60 years as Queen. Imagine having to hear the same anodyne comments from those with whom she has her thousand audiences – to say nothing of her tedium in politely conversing with whether diplomats, school children, MP’s, presidents, Palace employees.     

I guess she is a master at small talk but, apparently, she is also a master of big talk – informed. current, intelligent, witty.

Long live the Queen!
