MY SENTIMENTS regarding royalty are hardly those of a rabid royalist, but to be fair to the Queen, she has been an excellent monarch and has served Britain faithfully and continuously for many more than the Diamond Jubilee’s 60 years. From her days as a young ATS officer at the end of the Second World War, through to and beyond the “annus horriblis”?

Recognition for unstinting service is her due.
