I haven’t created a design in honor of the first Elizabeth’s namesake. In general, I avoid immortalizing living people unless I know them personally. But, I admit, I am increasingly tempted in this case. It’s sometimes a single anecdote of royal attitude that inspires me, and Liz the Second is so damn queenly! This story about Margaret Thatcher is just as fabulous as what Elizabeth I had to say about the height of Mary, Queen of Scots. And I love how she’s firmly resisted the possibility of abdication in favor of her son Charles … thus far. Personally, I hope the latest rumors are untrue and she rules till the age of 101 just to piss people off.
Speaking of royal get-togethers, did you see the photo of President Obama meeting two-year-old Prince George today?
That little robe and those big cheeks! George reportedly got to stay up 15 minutes past his bedtime in order to shake hands with the president.
UPDATED TO ADD: I forgot to mention I totally need to be the Queen’s social media guru.
