Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth!

Today is Queen Elizabeth's 93rd birthday. She is already the longest reigning monarch of Britain, and has been married to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh for over 70 years.

Queen Elizabeth was born in London on this day 93 years ago, to the then Duke and Duchess of York Albert and Elizabeth. When her uncle abdicated the throne and her father became King George VI, she became the heir to the throne. She married Prince Philip in 1947, and they have four children, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Edward. She also has eight grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Queen Elizabeth has had a lifelong love of horses and corgis as well as having created dorgis, which are corgi dachshund mix.

I personally hope that Queen Elizabeth has a wonderful birthday that she gets to celebrate how she wishes.

Meghan Markle Could Give Birth Any Day

The Duchess of Sussex could give birth to the newest member of the British Royal Family any day now. While we don't know many details about the baby, we do know that the baby will reside at Frogmore House at Windsor Castle. My predictions for the name of this baby is that it will be a classic name with a modern/popular nickname. For example the name Alexandra, which could be shortened to Alex or Alexa. Or the name Leopold, which could be shortened to Leo. Anyway, we will find out when the baby is born! I will keep you updated as soon as I know.

Ascension Day

Today is Queen Elizabeth's Ascension Day, one of the saddest days of the year for her, because it marks the death of her father and her rise to the throne. On this day, the Queen takes the day to herself, and she does not partake in any type of celebration. She mainly just has quiet reflection, as well as time to mourn her father. She credits her unusually long reign to the early death of her father.

Meghan Markle Would Love to Do Yoga

On Friday, despite the snow, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle journeyed to Bristol, England which is about two hours from London. They visited a few organizations, and did a walk about and met with the public. During said walk about, Meghan Markle chatted with a person in the crowd who, like Meghan Markle, does yoga. In that conversation Meghan Markle said, "It works for the mind and body, it’s so key. A nice practice would be so fantastic right now".

Meghan Markle's mother is a yoga instructor, and while Meghan was dating Prince Harry, she was often seen walking around Toronto, the Suits filming location carrying a yoga mat. She has also talked about and posted pictures of herself doing yoga.

It's no surprise that doing some yoga, especially to de-stress is would be super great for Meghan right now, what with expecting her first child and going on so many day trips all over England, constantly talking and representing the monarchy. Doing yoga would be an easy way to d…
