Remaining section of the Old Palace at Hatfield – Elizabeth’s residence when she became Queen.
“A Dominum factum est illud, et est mirabile in oculis notris”
“It is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes” – 118th Psalm
According to legend, these are the words that Elizabeth said upon hearing that her sister Mary had died and she was now Queen of England. I got a message from Heather at ElizabethI.org that the flowers we were collecting for have been sent. I doubt we’ll get a picture, but if we do I’ll be sure to post it.
And since this is also the anniversary of Mary I’s death, I’d like to say Requiscat in Pace – Rest in Peace.
Update – The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography has Elizabeth as the Life of the Day today.
