BlabberCat wishes Queen Elizabeth a happy birthday as her majesty turns 92. She is the longest-lived and longest-reigning British monarch as well as the world's longest-reigning queen regnant and female head of state, the oldest and longest-reigning current monarch and the oldest and longest-serving current head of state.
Here are some of the life and style lessons we have learnt from the iconic queen.
How to never fade away: Older age does not equal beige. The Queen’s favourite colour is apparently yellow, as worn to the wedding of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, tying in with her flower of preference, the carnation. Standing out in the crowd is the aim of the game
Outdoor time every single day: However busy her schedule is, the queen ensures time out with her dogs and a brisk walk to breathe fresh air.
Discipline pays dividends: Her Majesty still prefers to eat simple food afterwards, like meat with veg, not processed foods. And keeps a track on every work that needs to be done.
But discipline doesn't stop her from celebrating: A gin and Dubonnet widens the queen’s smile everyday. And She Has Not 1, but 2 Birthdays. In addition to honoring her actual day of birth on April 21, the queen is also treated to a national celebration in commemoration of the milestone every June.
No social obligations: Everyone must have heard about the queens handbag code; where if she puts her bag on the table her entourage gets a signal that she’s ready to leave. And if she shifts her bag from one hand to another, she is ready to move on from the conversation.
Her Majesty doesn’t believe in retiring from responsibilities: When you need to get things done, you get it done.
Your entry creates a long lasting impression: Whether it’s her customised Range Rover or a helicopter or even a horse; the queen knows how to make a grand entry.
One statement accessory should be exclusive only to you: It will not be statement if its imitated from someone else's style.
Matching is luxe and only the Queen can do it: While its a great style inspiration, it's quite a challenge to pull off everything matching and still not look like we didn't try too hard.
