Shades of Molly Kiley

I can't believe how tiny the Queen is. At first I thought it was the Queen Mother, but no, of course she died years ago. I then weirdly thought of Molly Kiley and all those pictures from the late 60's when she looked so tiny next to the looming grandchildren. (Notice she does have her purse close by, so maybe this isn't so far fetched.) I had to look really hard before it dawned on me that it is a much tinier Queen Elizabeth than I had seen recently. As Kate says in another blog -- "such a tiny little pink queen"

I hope she doesn't tip over, as Giggi (sp?) was reported to have done. That would be awkward if Michelle had to pick her up, as you are not supposed to touch the Royal Body.

I think she is actually more sturdy that Gigi -- look closely at her feet and legs -- all that walking through the heather.

Gigi had tiny feet, Mom says she wore a size 4 1/2 shoe. I love the stories of Gigi and not just because she is my name sake.
