Look at you with your long hair! I'm totally jealous that you went to London, England.
Hahaha, this is great, Shelly! That's a humungous painting. You look like a little doll next to it!Have a great week and happy A to Z!!
Oh my gosh, I need to get there! London is at least on my bucket list. All my kids have royal English influenced names...
wow that's a big picture
That's a great picture. Look how long your hair was then!
Man, I thought you were going to say that YOU were the queen! I think you are! The queen of awesome-sauce! :) Great pic!
Yes, my hair was long (that was Dec '10, I think. So not quite a year before I shaved it bald.)Yes, you have to get to London before you die. I want to go back again and again.Yes, I believe that painting was life-size. Unless I'm remembering wrong it was painted for her Golden Jubilee and kept in the Victoria and Albert Museum.Yes, I do make my children go around calling me Queen Awesome-sauce ;)
I am so glad to have movies like The Young Victoria to help me with my history. When people ask me historical questions I always have to preference all my knowledge comes from historical fiction or movies so take it with a grain of salt.
What a splendid photo! I love other countries and cultures, so it's a great bit of happiness to enjoy photos like this. And your expression is the icing on the cake!
