A motherlode

All hail the queen and her 99 "exact twins".

Buckingham Palace hosted a lovely luncheon for the Queen and her 99 guests who all share her birthday.  All 100 of them will be 80 on 21 April.  They came from Australia, New Zealand, and Canada to visit the mother-country for the event.

Most were surprised to find the Queen so different than they had thought.  She is a warm, genuine person who takes interest in folks, not just as her subjects, but as peers.  One woman affectionately says that the Queen is very small, just a slip of a thing.

The Queen gave heartfelt thanks for their company and wished them all a very happy birthday.
