The Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II

Like millions of people around the world, I watched the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on television this morning.

As I watched I felt compelled to make a few drawings.

Whatever your thoughts on the institution, history and relevance of the monarchy, there is no denying that the Queen lived an extraordinary life, and rose to the occasion that history demanded of her.

The comment on television that stood out to me most was this: ‘She was evolutionary, never revolutionary.’

I am paraphrasing and unfortunately can’t credit who said this, but it sums up her 70 year reign well.

Although this blog is called One Drawing A Day, it seemed that the occasion warranted a few extra drawings.

RIP Queen Elizabeth.

    Thanks for these drawings and the recap as I wasn’t able to watch today. Quite an interesting, unique life.
