The socialist in 1950 me she was in.
Kenny at a time when she found not to have father had died and it's about points -- essentially she took on royal -- But from then until 1953.
It was I remember a time when essentially carnation was a few months later this -- why the celebration of the Diamond Jubilee.
Is actually a twelve month celebration really.
You know there's a beautiful picture of her -- -- the -- today in the near times front page of style section they.
I was taken aback by I actually fit my daughters -- assurances queen.
She's loved his -- She's loved very much and if you think about it sixty years of public service is a phenomenal achievement.
She was 26 years old when you put yourself in the mind of 26 year old right now and you suddenly get tone from here into the queen it is an incredible responsibility and over the years she's coming from -- she has some.
What public services -- about.
He is it your sense that -- is gonna stay here.
The -- -- until the end.
Well as long as she's able to perform a wonderful duties as she performs I would think that you will be that you've got to remember actually very -- thing -- -- number.
Is that she is the second longest.
British morning to Queen Victoria.
Was queen for 63 years really just three years away just this incredible.
That a big guessing game is just the crown and go to Charles or will they skip a generation.
What what might what might -- -- there's -- this should be no discussion about that for the crown room but there hasn't stopped in my right now a lot of people -- and Aaron speculates and school etc.
but at the end of the day it was a very we have from cream wrapped.
-- -- -- -- But Charles -- -- the case.
And and get -- his that so many things could happen yes that is a possibility.
There's a very clear pot here from.
Her majesty the queen Elizabeth the second's.
Vendors and -- As.
Grown in stature we think over the years.
My sense is that they have.
That that people seeing them really well that and it's from Bosnia today what is it about the queen for his -- and people love.
And -- defined -- as she has been a constant -- good for sixty years which I think is a really nice way of putting it.
And to my earlier comment about public service.
That finally works incredibly hard on behalf of the country nicely here in New York where a number of them spent considerable time in the US.
Whether supporting trade and investment -- good foundations -- courses for good very hard work and people appreciate.
But it's also.
2012 inches a year -- people in Britain have been looking forward to for years and years and yes because the Diamond Jubilee.
We've got the Olympic and paralympic games just a phenomenal year when the eyes of the world tends to be in the UK and some reason decided it was -- recent marriage sort of resurgence.
And the popularity.
Well he's clearly in the US resound -- I was astonished to hear that 24 million people.
You didn't follow the royal wedding in the united as I bag went -- okay.
The story out of -- -- my name is Basil read our.
Definitely had a really have to -- -- -- 5 o'clock.
5:30 in the morning for us and I was leading killer for me actually -- whenever it was a beautiful of the ending is a fascination in this country for show but just as that was a fascination and you've got thousands of -- -- -- On the day in in London and thousands of people wonderful atmosphere people celebrations.

So essentially really excited about that there accident accident is seen as very -- from London this very thankful for the UK.
And it will be some of celebration for sports.
But then of course the games in the UK is not just about the weeks of the games is what happens in the country off the path for many years to come.
In the federal -- of people talking about the legacy of games and this is about kind of redefining.
-- the UK's or bouncing over the competitive industries that were working on as a result of the games that really is.
Very interesting -- defining moment school -- -- -- It certainly was for trying to.
I mean it is a huge opportunity.
It's just unfortunate I think for England -- it follows on the heels of China because that was an un believable spectacle as we extremely hard to surpass that.
It was at the end of the day you know we will not do -- sort of things that Janet Taylor -- every country.
Tries to do what they can do well imprison -- surprise in which -- creativity and innovation and ingenuity and all of the things that could Britain stands for.
So what do you think will be the queen's favorite part -- to -- While she's got an incredible program in the celebrations and in Britain and the next few days mainly between the second.
And the fifth and you that would be comes to the palace and we'll be she will be attending the -- Dhabi.
They will be -- -- from the -- -- hundreds of people who had coming down coming down times it will be Thanksgiving service and principles.
