The queens mum, ie the queen mother, has just died.
She was 101.
Great Lady, rest in peace. sad
my hat is off to her...
May she rest in peace
My wife was born & raised in the small village of Shipton-U-Wychwood, in Oxfordshire, Engalnd.
I was a young memeber of the US Air Force stationed at good old RAF Upper Heyford when I met her and we married in Oct 1969.
We have been stationed in England 3 times and our most recent visit to the palace was in October of 2001.
The Queen Mother was a grand old lady and a legend in her own right at the time we got married.
She proved to be a pilar of strength thru the Princess Di tragedy and more recently Princess Margret's death.
We are truely saddened by the death of this great lady.
May God Bless her soul
I haven't been to the palace since 1997, heh.
Dad met the queen n that. zzz.
I had a broken arm and a grade 1 haircut.
My parents weren't amused.
RIP Queen Mother.
I had the pleasure of watching her thru the war and onwards.
She was brought up 4 miles down the road from where I live, (Glamis Castle). She was well known by all and sundry in this area, and to-day will be the loss of a grand old friend.
God take care of you Mam.
My mother-in-law(God bless her) met the queen
My brother-in-law has met Prince Charles
My wife (as a wee pup) has met Princess Margret
The only thing I saw at the palace in Oct was the Royal Horse's
My dads mates with Prince Charles as he used to my dads boss...hah!
Big loss. My condolences.
