Queen Elizabeth was born April 21, 1926. However, out of consideration for the English people, she officially celebrates her birthday on the first, second or third Saturday in June. I thought that was very nice of her. I have been in England in April. Trust me: most April days in England are no good for outdoor celebration. Question: on which day should Americans offer Her Majesty wishes for good health. For me, I wish Her Majesty good wishes and long life every single day, especially when I consider the kind of monarch the Prince of Wales is likely to turn out to be. Prince Charles seems to be intent on establishing himself as an honorary Moslem. Indeed, I understand that he wishes to become known not as Defender of THE Faith, but Defender of Faith, as in “of religion.” As many disagreements as I have with the Church of England, I think I recognize the lesser of two evils quite clearly. So with that in mind, here’s hoping Her Majesty’s longevity exceeds that of her dear, departed Mum, the Queen Mother.
