Tribute To The Queen

Elizabeth Windsor, the second Elizabeth to be Queen of England and Great Britain as well as its territories, met her end on Thursday the Eighth of September in the year Twenty Twenty Two.

The Queen was born in 1926 and ascended to the throne in 1952 after the death of her father King George VI. She got to be Britain’s longest serving monarch and in her lifetime of nearly a hundred years saw an incredible amount of change in the world.

The monarchy and The Queen mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Although the monarchy has diminished in recent years I believe that Queen Elizabeth will be the last important monarch of Britain. The antics of the Royal Family are changing how the public perceive them but The Queen always met the noble expectations that I had of her. She welcomed in a new Prime Minister before she left us to be with the rulers of old, giving her that one final purpose before she went.

I know people think the British are all Royal mad for no reason, however the Royals were always symbolic of the pride of a nation. We base our anthem on the fact that God stands over and watches our monarch. Although the Royals aren’t politically significant anymore there’s strength that shines through from thousands of years ago because we have the crown.

I’ve done the above drawing of The Queen and have written a poem below.

Seventy years,

You did it old girl,

Smiled for a nation,

And won our admiration.

All the events,

All the celebrations,

Went to see your horses,

You even served with the forces,

Balmoral or Buckingham,

A world renowned attraction,

A glory to behold,

Graceful even though old,

Royals weren’t my thing,

Yet I respect your time,

Look how long it’s been,

God save The Queen.
