While watching the Queen`s birthday celebrations yesterday, I remembered the one time that I ever saw her. She was passing through our town at a certain time and we all went to the main road and stood on the path waiting for the Royal car. We waited for ages and when the Royal car passed by I saw her wave. I only managed to see her hand and the side of her head , but at least I can say that I have seen her.

Even at her age, the Queen still looks beautiful and regal :)

She has been a wonderful ambassador for her country and a great role model for the rest of the royals.

People wait for hours to see her, don't they? She has been a remarkable sovereign for her country.

@millie02 ...I would be pleased with my timing if I were you. Sounds like a few seconds more and you would missed her.

I have never seen Queen Elizabeth, but I have seen several times Prince Rainier of Monaco and Princess Grace when I lived in Monte-Carlo.

That is a good memory. I remember when she was just a new queen and came to visit Canada. Our school made arrangements to take us all to the city to see her. There were so many school children there that we could not get too close, but we did see her pass by. It was something to remember.

I think I saw her when I was about 7 years old. I'd forgotten but my mother swears I did.
