The Queen Mum

Portrait of a Queen
I learned a lot about Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother during this piece. Here she is before her Buckingham Palace in about 1940. A few years later, her palace was bombed during the war, but she refused to leave for Canada, choosing instead to help those suffering in her country. She was an amazing woman.

This is what the Queen Mother spent a lot of her time during the war, visiting bombed out cities and wounded soldiers.
