Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon
HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUEEN ELIZABETH II | April 21, 1926“I cannot lead you into battle. I do not give you laws or administer justice but I can do something else - I can give my heart and my devotion to these old islands and to all the peoples of our brotherhood of nations.”
Queen Elizabeth II with Prince Andrew, by Cecil Beaton, ca. 1960.

“Your sensational appearance at the opening ceremony of last year’s Olympics was especially memorable. So much so that several of my colleagues here tonight want you to know that should you wish to take it further into the world of British films that they have a number of scripts with them here this evening. I have to warn you, Your Majesty, not all of these films are fully financed.” | Queen Elizabeth II receives an honorary BAFTA from Sir Kenneth Branagh in recognition of a lifetime’s support to British Film and Television at Windsor Castle on April 4, 2013
What does she mean to you?
Helen Mirren: Apart from my sister, she’s the only other person who’s been a total constant in my life, ever since I was… you know, came to consciousness the Queen was there. And that’s an incredible kind of rock to have in your life, I think.
