Royals I love: Queen Elizabeth I (♥)
There is nothing about which I am more anxious than my country, and for its sake I am willing to die ten deaths, if that be possible.
Royals I love: Jane Seymour (♥)
Bound to obey and serve.
Royals I love: Cleopatra VII (♥)
For her beauty, as we are told, was in itself not altogether incomparable, nor such as to strike those who saw her; but converse with her had an irresistible charm, and her presence, combined with the persuasiveness of her discourse and the character which was somehow diffused about her behaviour towards others, had something stimulating about it. There was sweetness also in the tones of her voice; and her tongue, like an instrument of many strings, she could readily turn to whatever language she pleased. - Plutarch.
Royals I love: Prince Harry (♥)
You’ve got to give something back. You can’t just sit there.
Royals I love: Prince William (♥)
I think it’s very important that you make your own decision about what you are. Therefore you’re responsible for your actions, so you don’t blame other people.
Royals I love: Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe Coburg-and Gotha (♥)
Never can I forget how beautiful my darling looked lying there with his face lit up by the rising sun, his eyes unusually bright gazing as it were on unseen objects and not taking notice of me. I stood up, kissed his dear heavenly forehead and called out in a bitter agonizing cry: ‘Oh! my dear darling!’, and then dropped on my knees in mute, distracted despair unable to utter a word or shed a tear. - Queen Victoria.
Royals I love: Queen Anne Boleyn (♥)
Good Christian people, I am come hither to die, for according to the law, and by the law I am judged to die, and therefore I will speak nothing against it. I am come hither to accuse no man, nor to speak anything of that, whereof I am accused and condemned to die, but I pray God save the king and send him long to reign over you, for a gentler nor a more merciful prince was there never: and to me he was ever a good, a gentle and sovereign lord. And if any person will meddle of my cause, I require them to judge the best. And thus I take my leave of the world and of you all, and I heartily desire you all to pray for me. O Lord have mercy on me, to God I commend my soul.
Royals I love: Princess Margaret Rose (♥)
I have as much privacy as a goldfish in a bowl.
Royals I love: The Duke and Duchess of Windsor (♥)
But you must believe me when I tell you that I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as King as I would wish to do without the help and support of the woman I love. - The Duke of Windsor during his abdication speech.
Royals I love: Diana, Princess of Wales (♥)
Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
