This blog began as The White Queen hit TV screens so it seems quite appropriate that as I reboot and refocus, Elizabeth Woodville is making headlines again. This still controversial queen is in the news again as fresh research throws a different light on how she spent her final days.

The Queen's 93rd birthday fell  on Easter Sunday which meant we all got a glimpse of the monarch on her special day. And while the papers might have been talking about brothers at war, the Queen did what she always did - smiled and got on with things. On a sunny day in Windsor, she made sure the image of royalty remained calm and serene. Still ruling at 93, here's the Queen's birthday photo album for 2019.

The Queen of England is 93 today. We'll see her at Windsor as she marks Easter with her family. Celebrated today as the longest reigning, the longest lived and perhaps the most beloved of all monarchs, she began life over nine decades ago as a princess with no prospect of a throne.
