In honor of her jubilee, enjoy these candid & rare QE2 photos

Queen Elizabeth II just celebrated her Platinum Jubilee, an historically unprecedented 70 years on the British throne. That’s almost three-quarters of a century. Contemplate that for a moment.

I posted on the occasion of her 65th Sapphire Jubilee in 2017 about how I feel about this great lady. This said it all, so I saw no reason to pen a fresh tribute.

But since my latest all-consuming obsession is Pinterest, I came across some photos on there of Her Majesty that might surprise some. We are so used to seeing the queen depicted as appearing dour, stern and joyless. So please enjoy these retro and contemporary shots of QE2 being cute, silly, adorable, impish, human, beautiful, and, yes, sexy.
