Buckingham Palace, 2016

2 months shy of 100 years of age. Pretty damn sweet! The monarchy is not my personal thing however I recognize the family’s role in the United Kingdom and around the world, and it’s never easy when a prominent and well liked person passes. I read Prince Philip visited Canada 29 times in his life and USA a further 6; that unto itself is quite something for North America. RIP.

Thank you to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for vacationing on Vancouver Island this holiday… and a huge black eye to the British press for continually bullying this family, including today with their decision to take a new and modern approach to living as Royalty.  I am confident we Canadians will welcome Prince Harry and Meghan and will leave them alone to enjoy life in this country.  This is a picture of Big Ben clock tower, also known as the Great Bell at the North end of Palace of Westminster, London England, taken summer of 2016.
