The Spotlight Never Goes Out for the Queen! #RoyalWedding

Even as her grandson and his new bride were saying their vows, there she was, being gazed upon by the world.
It would have been an extraordinary, perhaps even terrifying feeling, were it being experienced by anyone else. But for her, for almost 60 years, it has been a fact of life.
For her, the unending global gaze cast in her direction has been the definition of ordinary. Queen Elizabeth — for most people now alive, there has never been a time when Elizabeth was not the queen, or when those two words have not conjured up a picture of her.
So for her, the spotlight never goes out.
