George & Elizabeth Layout

When in London, we took pictures of the statues of Queen Elizabeth II's parents, George VI and Queen Elizabeth. The little I knew about them was gleaned from the Netflix series the Crown and the movie The King's Speech, so I checked them out on Wikipedia and was surprised to find out that they actually married for love, something that is probably overlooked in all the hoopla surrounding George's older brother Edward's abdication so he could marry the love of his life! Using lyrics from a couple of Bryan Adams' songs, I played off the fact that he asked her to marry him and she refused twice because she was "afraid never, never again to be free to think, speak and act as I feel I really ought to." His determination won the day and they lived quite happily together for 29 years until his death in 1952.

I tucked a journaling card behind the green cardstock.
