Ten years ago I was standing in the Saatchi Gallery in London totally mesmerized by this picture of Queen Elizabeth II. Though I did not realise at the time why this image had such a profound reaction on me, I knew as I exited through the gift shop that I had to secure a copy of this print. On reflection I realised that it was the humility and vulnerability shown that humanised the Queen and portrayed her exemplary duty to the Commonwealth and afar in an even greater landscape. Her 70 year reign will not be surpassed, nor her strength, courage, dignity and devotion to serving the people through some of the most, to quote the Queen, ‘Annus horribilis’ periods in our history. This serene image of Queen Elizabeth II at peace, which she now is, sits proudly on the wall in my office at home as a constant reminder of the unwavering strength of an individual, who has shown lifelong service and leadership throughout hers, and my entire life.
