I'm not sure where the fascination with HRH came from. My anglophile Grandmother perhaps? Or a trip to the Empress Hotel in Victoria, B.C., where a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II hung quite prominently in the lobby? At any rate, I thought it would be fun this year to add an updated portrait to the pile of early works that Mom still has with a "Queen for the Day" themed Mother' Day card--although my Mom will always be Queen to me every day.
BTW, I have to say that the Queen's sunny yellow fashion choice was one of my favorite details from the Royal Wedding. It seemed to be such an optimistic statement and a sartorial testament to her happiness with the match. Or so I would like to think.

Hope all you Mom's out there had a lovely Mother's Day and that you received the royal treatment!
