Queen Elizabeth will be celebrating her Diamond Jubilee as the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom and this Sunday, BBC America will be offering throne-to-throne coverage all day. Yes, calling all Anglophiles! You know who you are! Those of us who simply cannot get enough of our favorite Royals will be in heaven this weekend. America may no longer be a colony of the British, but we still turn to them for guidance. Take for example how when it was learned that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, wears nude stockings that caused sales of such to skyrocket both in the UK and here in the US.
Yes! Now we know why Prince William loves her so! There was a time when women who would venture into public with bare legs were considered tramps, or impoverished at the very least. Kate Middleton wearing nude stockings is bringing back the whole concept of dressing and behaving like a LADY! So is it hard to understand why we love the Royals so?
A touch of class is a welcome change from the cultural slide we are bearing witness to on a daily basis. Even before becoming Queen, Princess Elizabeth demonstrated her class and style by volunteering during World War Two to serve in the Women′s Auxiliary as a vehicle mechanic. The Royals set the standard for good taste and behavior. Despite her position, Elizabeth even set an example after the war, staying within the national guidelines as fabric was still being rationed when it came to her wedding gown.
Queen Elizabeth and her Diamond Jubilee remind us all of how important it is to observe some standards in life. BBC America will be airing a day-long celebration this Sunday honoring the Queen and her family. The Royals are now more popular than ever following the marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton last year. As the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton is doing her part by wearing nude stockings, bringing back the practice after years of cultural decay.
