Yes, Elizabeth II is parading around Slovenia these days. And today she did make a few steps through the center of Ljubljana and I just had to go there and try to catch a sight of her. I was late to the party so I wasn't able to find a good spot for taking pics - which is painfully obvious when you take a look at the pics.



Oh, well, but it was still worth it. I mean, I am pretty sure she is going to be the only real Queen I've ever seen in my life.


When I got on the main square this looked like a good spot for some pictures. But people were still coming.


In the crowd. Focus is on god-knows-what. The tall man on her right is our president.


And then she came really close and I said "ALRIGHT", but people were all around me and I had to lift my cam and shot a series of pictures. I checked them later. I still feel like a complete plonker. :) Because this is the best picture I have of Her Royal Majesty..... LOL


And then.... she walked out of my life. A few bitter/sweet silly seconds. :)

Still, that's closer than many have come to her. I've never seen her yet. And good to see she wears sensible shoes. And that cop in the first picture is better than a gazillion Queens. Thank you!

Well.... imagine a lady in here age, wearing high heels, walking around old Ljubljana. Pictures could be way more interesting. LOL

And yes... a lot of juicy policemen were on the streets today. :)

Welcome, C!

They are still great pictures (especially the shoes!)

You should schedule a trip to London for Trooping the Colour in June - enough royals to last for a lifetime! LOL!

OMG, that is so cool Tomaz! I think it was worth it. Also, I can honestly say that I've never seen a better picture of a monarch's feet. ;)

Hehehe extremely cool! And today, a day after, I can say she's got pretty appropriate shoes. :)

Great stuff! I saw her in 1975, when I was holiday in Dumfries in the south of Scotland. She was opening a hospital, I think. I remember thinking she looked caked in makeup.

If you make it out here, you can meet Scottish royalty... :-)

Thanks! I think I will look for Scottish royalty next, yes, yes.... definitely. :)

Not to diss your president, but I'm much more interested in the guy in the sunglasses *behind* the queen. :-)

Yes, I have to agree. There was a lot of flesh around her. :)

If you combine pictures #2 and #3 together somehow, you'll have one whole Queen Betty, LOL!

But yes, the shoes photo is priceless! :)

Picture #2 seems she is looking right at you. Did you yell, "HEY LIZ!!", was it just your natural good looks that drew her to you or were you the guy with no pants that the security were talking about over thier earphones? ;-)

Oct. 24th, 2008 12:15 am (UTC)
Well... I was completely quiet, so it must have been my good looks, yes, yes.... definitely. LOL

About those security... I'd prefer an... eye to eye... conversation with some of them. Most definitely. :)

Ahahahaaha!!!! Great pic! I was on my way to my uncle’s funeral. I went from Ljubljana at 11.15 cause the funeral started at 1 PM in Koper. But Elisabeth stopped me at the highway for one hour, cause she was returning from Lipica. So I came late to the funeral. It was just horrible, cause I wrote the farewell speech and I was supposed to read it... I arrived at the beginning of the speech... my brother was reading instead of me. So I just waited him to finish the sentence and then I jumped in saying "excuse me all for being late, the queen made me arrive late" and then continued reading the speech. And I noticed some people trying to hide laugh... especially the close relatives, the family that lost my uncle, cause they know me so well... being late for 33 years now and trying to find silly excuses ... we had such laugh after the funeral ... I thing my uncle would laugh too knowing that I arrived late also to his funeral ...
