The Queen Mum, died in her sleep at age 101, just weeks after her daughter, Princess Margaret, died at age 71.
As a mom who has lost both of my daughters, I know all too well how losing Princess Margaret must have been life’s final straw for the Queen Mother as she journeyed thru her remarkable success at growing old gracefully. The death of her child, even when that child was 71, was still a pain too astonishing for a frail & aging woman’s heart to bear. To be certain, such a mother’s grief is not for the faint of heart or weariness of years.
“Queen Elizabeth has put up alot during her reign, Like Princess Margret’s affair and her disaster of a marriage, the failure of her own children marriages, The embarrassment that is Diana and Fergie, then she had to deal with Diana’s death, the monarchy has been put on the line many times, yet, she manages to keep it all together. Queen Liz is amazing. Through it all she has seen her grandchildren get married and have children and even her own marriage survived. Amazing.” - Submitted by Anonymous
