Yes I agree with Emucentral and I agree with Fatdragon as well.
It was the Queen Mother who lived well over 100 ( 103 or 105 or something )
Princess Margaret smoked and drank so she died a little younger.

By the way, what a great movie that Queen was

Well he certainly wasn't a saint. But then nor was Diana despite the image that was painted for her. The unsung heroine of the family is Princess Anne who has been quietly doing charity work without all the adolation from the Media. It was in recognition of her work that she was made Princess Royal.

She has pursued a busy schedule of public duties. In addition to carrying out engagements in support of The Queen, she works on behalf of a broad range of organisations.

She has a high-profile role as President of Save the Children Fund, and is a member of the International Olympic Committee.

The Princess Royal has also been closely involved in the creation of a number of charities, including The Princess Royal Trust for Carers, Riders for Health and Transaid.

Her work takes her all over the world, including visits to many developing countries to see the work of the organisations with which she is involved.

what about justice ?


Assuming for the moment that the allegations are true, would you really expect that any justice would be seen to be done at these levels of society and government?

The current Monarch is Queen Elizabeth II . She is the Queen in her own right.

Her mother was Queen because she was married to King George VI.
She was called Queen Elizabeth (no number following) until her daughter ascended the throne, and was called the Queen Mother, thereafter to avoid confusion.

The other Queen Elizabeth, who reigned in her own right was Queen Elizabeth I , from November 1558 to her death in 1603.
Her father was Henry VIII.
