I saw this picture of 95-year-old Queen Elizabeth II, and I could not help reacting to it. Yes, she is Queen, but she is human also. This woman should be allowed to rest att home and not be dragged around and invited everywhere, to too many activities. At her age. No! I recommend, no, I request, or rather demand, that she should be allowed more time to rest. She needs a lot of rest, at her age. In this picture, she is falling asleep, possibly because she is tired and exhausted. May be she is exhausted because of her too many programmes. Or that she did not have enough sleep the night before. Please, for God´s sake, I appeal to everyone involved in her daily protocol to respect her age. And allow her to have a lot of rest.
Queen Elizabeth II was born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor on 21 April 1926 in Mayfair, London, to King George VI, then Britain’s reigning king, and to his Queen Elizabeth (born Bowes-Lyon).
