Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II

QE2_Royal_Portrait

Though a magnificently Monarchical picture, this Royal photo makes Her Majesty look much more severe than I like to think of her. Still, it is not entirely inappropriate, given her position as Sovereign not only of the United Kingdom, but a full sixteen Commonwealth Realms, including Canada, New Zealand, and Australia, and head of the Commonwealth of Nations, also known as the British Commonwealth and Anglosphere, with no less than 53 nations (personally, I think there should be 54 nations, and seventeen Realms, but I know not all Americans would agree with me…). The sun may have set on the British Empire, but that does not mean that Great Britain is not without significance in the world, or its Monarch without influence!

Author: The Anglophilic Anglican

I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which out techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.
