God save the queen

at the horses

Queen Elizabeth at the horses: Amused. (The Epsom Derby, 6/2/1)

Queen Elizabeth on a boat: Not amused. (The royal flotilla, 6/3/12)

Also, Anne Applebaum on why QE2 is actually kind of awesome. (“[S]he always — always! — thinks of something to say.”)

Happy diamond jubilee, Queen Elizabeth. And look out Victoria, Bessie’s got you in her sights.
