Platinum Jubilee Quote Of The Day

‘I declare before you all, that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.

God help me to make good my vow, and God bless all of you who are willing to share in it.’

-From a speech made by the The Queen, aged twenty-one, in 1947.

Platinum Jubilee Queen

It used to be silver

Then it was gold

She was always a diamond

Who couldn’t be sold

And now it is platinum

And so it should be

For seventy years

She’s kept dignity

She’s a trooper

And not just of the colour

A Queen by nature

They’ll be no other

She’s one in a million

Top notch – she’s ace

She’s held down this job

With composure and grace

We’ll celebrate

As best as we can

A tonic for the nation

Happy Birthday Ma’am.
