Queen Elizabeth: Olympics Opening Ceremony’s MVP [PHOTOS]
And then, he enters Her Majesty’s quarters and waits patiently for the monarch to finish a task…and waits some more…until the Queen turns around, quietly acknowledges Mr. Craig, then leads the way to a helicopter in the backyard.
We can’t blame the Queen for being a quiet while David Cameron and Princess Anne chat around her at Olympic Stadium. She’s a hard-working woman, so if she wants to sit there stone-faced, then so be it.
She’s alright by us, either way.
In 1948, the then-Princess Elizabeth attended the London Summer Games with her husband, Prince Philip and parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. These events marked a return to the Olympics after a 12-year hiatus because of World War II. It was a rather austere occasion, given the economic circumstances of the time; no new venues were built, and athletes were housed in existing accomodations rather than in an “Olympic village.”
