I am not a Monarchist but.....

I truly believe that no single person could ever be more deserving of the title 'Majesty' than Queen Elizabeth II. 

And so I am delighted that a rather massive part of Antarctica is to be named after her. Queen Elizabeth Land - it is an honour for her, and also an abiding statement of who we are, and of the power that we can, should we so wish, wield. If only we might wield it more....

At a time when it is popular for certain elements in our society to self-flagellate, and when patriotism can be a questionable ideal, just look at this lady, and marvel at her beauty and her dignity.
