Queen Elizabeth II in The Lodge Posted September 12 · Report reply 2 hours ago, chugbug27 said: Really sad that we had that kerfuffle back in the 18th century... She would have been out monarch in God's glory, too. I was there on July 4th 1976 when she spoke at Independence Hall congratulating us on our 200th birthday. No hard feelings, apparently. In some ways, she was still our queen. If anybody spoke of "the queen", you didn't have to ask which queen. For example, Margrethe, queen of Denmark just celebrated 50 years on the the throne, but you never think of her as "the queen."
