"It is more than a year since, at a time of great personal grief, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II bravely took up the task for which she was destined and for which her beloved father had devotedly trained her.
During that time we have gradually come to realise that Her Majesty has a new conception of what Royalty means. She has an absorbing interest in the things that affect her people; and circumstances have given her an understanding greater than any other monarch has possessed of the way we live and work."
