Monarchist League Celebrate Queen's Birthday
The Monarchist League of New Zealand Inc 21 April 2006

public figure who can compare with The Queen. She is

dignity and example. The peoples of her realms, and of the
Commonwealth, have been truly blessed to have such a person
as their Queen and Head. God Save The Queen!
