Queen Mother 1900-2002

Queen Mother 1900-2002

Here's a role model for Harry to look up to as Queen Mother statue unveiled

SHE lived to 101, sustained by gin and tonic, horseracing and the Highlands' fresh air. Yet a younger face of the Queen Mother was unveiled yesterday by her daughter, the Queen, on a new national monument that celebrates the woman she was rather than the "nation's granny" which she later became.
