She was a wonderful Monarch and woman. I wrote her (snail mail), three times over the years. She was kind enough to reply to me via her senior Lady in Waiting each time. So I know she got my letters/work. I also sent her a small portrait of Her Majesty & Prince Phillip I did for her for their 70th Anniversary. She was pleased. I treasure those letters, as I will always treasure her. I hope she is with Philip now. I also have a reply from the late Queen Mother too. I write this not to brag, but to show that they were both very kind women. I will not tolerate anybody claiming anything else, no matter who they are.
Rest in peace, Your Majesty.
