Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II – called by some “the last Christian Monarch” – speaks on the practical difficulties of Crowns and Coronations. Also includes a look at the other Royal Regalia which are part of the last Coronation service in the world with roots extending back into the Middle Ages: a remarkable example of the continuity of the British Monarchy.
I found myself especially moved and touched by the Sovereign’s Ring – “known by some as the Wedding Ring of England,” which symbolizes the lifetime commitment of the Monarch.
Her Majesty The Queen has certainly dedicated her life to serving her people and Kingdom – indeed, the United Kingdom, as well as the Commonwealth Realms of which she is Head of State – as she promised at her unexpected Accession, following the untimely death of her father, King George VI.
She has done it with grace, poise, and dignity, as well as consummate wisdom and shrewdness, for longer than any other British Monarch, and with unmatched skill. Loved and respected by her own people and by millions around the world, it will be long e’er we see her like again.
May God continue to grant Her Majesty health and long life!
