“The Queen”, non è solo una figura istituzionale ma una vera e propria icona di stile (basti pensare ai suoi completi dai colori più disparati) e simbolo di una nazione.

The Queen has hosted a reception at Windsor Castle in celebration of the centenary of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations. The Princess Royal and The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester also attended the reception. The NCVO represents a diverse community of over 14,000 member organisations of all sizes – a third of the voluntary sector workforce in England – and the reception highlighted the achievements of voluntary action over the last 100 years. Tonight, The Queen met volunteers from all different charities including Louise Munro who is Helpforce’s Young Volunteer of the Year. She has a chronic condition yet volunteers at hospitals to take care of the elderly, and those on orthopaedics and stroke wards. Find out more by following our Instagram story.

Elisabetta II è stata incoronata nell’abbazia di Westminister a Londra il 2 giugno del 1953 dopo la morte del padre, Giorgio VI, quando aveva solo 27 anni. Nel 2017 ha festeggiato anche le nozze di platino con il Principe Filippo, presenza immancabile nella sua vita e padre dei suoi figli Carlo, Anna, Andrea e Edoardo.

Nel corso del suo regno ha incontrato tantissime personalità da Winston Churchill a Barack Obama fino a Donald Trump. A lei hanno dedicato anche la serie Netflix “The Crown” sulla storia della sua famiglia e sull’ascesa al trono.

L’ultimo evento a cui ha partecipato è stato giovedì 18 aprile in occasione del Giovedì Santo, dove ha donato a 93 donne e uomini due sacchetti: in uno e una moneta da 5 sterline coniata per il 200esimo anniversario della nascita della Regina Vittoria e una moneta da 50 penny con impresso il volto di Sherlock Holmes, uno bianco con monete in argento per un valore di 93 penny (poco più di 1 euro).

During the service, The Queen handed out Maundy Money to 93 men and 93 women – which celebrates The Queen's 93 years! The Queen will turn 93 on Sunday.

Today, The Queen has released a message ahead of Commonwealth Day on Monday. "Commonwealth Day has a special significance this year as we mark the 70th anniversary of the London Declaration, when nations of the Commonwealth agreed to move forward together as free and equal members. The vision and sense of connection that inspired the signatories has stood the test of time, and the Commonwealth continues to grow, adapting to address contemporary needs. "Today, many millions of people around the world are drawn together because of the collective values shared by the Commonwealth. In April last year, I welcomed the leaders of our 53 nations to Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, and we all witnessed how the Commonwealth vision offers hope, and inspires us to find ways of protecting our planet, and our people. "We are able to look to the future with greater confidence and optimism as a result of the links that we share, and thanks to the networks of cooperation and mutual support to which we contribute, and on which we draw. With enduring commitment through times of great change, successive generations have demonstrated that whilst the goodwill for which the Commonwealth is renowned may be intangible, its impact is very real. "We experience this as people of all backgrounds continue to find new ways of expressing through action the value of belonging in a connected Commonwealth. I hope and trust that many more will commit to doing so this Commonwealth Day." 📷 PA Images #commonwealth
