Queen Elizabeth

Today I'm celebrating Queen Elizabeth I 475th birthday.
She was born on 7/09/1533 and died on 24/03/1603.
I found this statue in Canterbury Cathedral. She looks very regal and no longer young. The writing reads Elizabetha Regina



She died aged of 70 years old...it's a kind of record at this time.

She does look like a healthy eater, too. Perhaps that is why she lived so long. Peas and carrots kids. Eat those peas and carrots. Always learning something from your blog, Rose. Have a sunny week!

A formidable woman indeed! She certainly lived a long life for her era.

Such a glorious and regal looking place; perfect for a birthday "celebration' for such a Queen!
