Photo of the Week – Statues of King George VI & Queen Elizabeth

midlifewanderlust1965

This week's photo is of King George VI and his wife Queen Elizabeth.

The parents of the present queen these statues can be found to the side of Pall Mall. King George or better known as Bertie to the royal family had not expected to become King. However, when Edward VIII abdicated he was thrown into the spotlight. They both became popular with the British public especially through World War II. When King George died in 1952 the Queen Mother remained in the public eye and affection until her death in 2002.

Until the next post stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.
