Her Maj: 60 Years of Unofficial Portraits of the Queen | Cartoon Museum | Too Gentle on the Queen? | By Richard Holledge -

To celebrate her 21st birthday in April 1947, the British magazine Punch commissioned a cartoon of Princess Elizabeth. Drawn by E.H. Shepard, better known for his whimsical illustrations of Winnie the Pooh, she is in a summery dress, clutching a bouquet from her grateful subjects—an array of fairies with messages reading Happiness, Peace, Prosperity. In its sweet way it was a breakthrough. It was the first depiction of the future queen in cartoon form and reflects a respect for the monarchy that would be inconceivable today.

Or does it?

Those are wonderful caricatures I've never seen before. They really brought a smile to my face today. I especially liked the caption on Philip's medals saying "I'm bloody 85 years old y'know"!
