“No British monarch, has lived as long as Elizabeth the 2nd, traveled as far, met as many people, seen as much change within society and within the monarchy itself.”
Princess Eugenie: “The thing about Granny is that she’s moved with the times, and I think people are sort of astounded by her.”
“Only one other monarch has celebrated 60 years on the throne; a Diamond Jubilee. But while Victoria spent much of her reign out of sight, her great-great granddaughter understands that a modern sovereign must be seen to be believed. That monarchy is a team effort, and that it will only endure if it remains relevant and useful; with a personal touch too."
