“Over the years, those who have seemed to me to be the most happy, contented and fulfilled have always been the people who have lived the most outgoing and unselfish lives.” Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022)
I remember taking the photo of The Queen’s portrait on April 27, 2015. We were visiting the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders Museum which is close to Stirling Castle. My son was a bagpiper and that was the year we followed the bagpipes!
I will miss our Queen…
The Piper to the Sovereign (Scottish Gaelic: Piobair an Bhàn Righ, also known as the Queen’s Piper or King’s Piper) is a position in the British Royal Household in which the holder of the office is responsible for playing the bagpipes at the Sovereign’s request.
Queen Victoria establish this position in 1843 after visiting The Marquess of Breadalbane at Taymouth Castle in 1842.
“I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.” Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022)
