What was your best moment of 2012?
QUEEN'S DIAMOND JUBILEE
From some quite miserable times of make-and-mend to not having any much at all my mother and father's good nature and humourous characters seemed to change that day. Every adult appeared to sense a new beginning - a new Elizabethan age.
The Queen's remarkable reign has encompassed some amazing developments; moved with the changing times both technologically and cultural. My photograph taken in the main hall at Covent Garden, London bedecked with flags two days before the celebrations began had a noisy anticipation from Londoners and visitors. The event had drawn thousands of foreign visitor to the capital and would again in a few months for the London Olympics where again her Majesty would take centre stage.
As head of state the Monarch is apolitical a wonderful rarity in today's democracy, an asset within the global community. She has carried out her duties and obligations with aplomb, serves tirelessly, and has the love of the nation.
