Yes, she may have been mad, as she later said, but it was a magnificent folly. Look that says it all about her views on pushy Blair During her 64 years on the throne, the Queen has dealt with 13 prime ministers, starting with Sir Winston Churchill. He restates the most obvious and previously disproved rumors and innuendo about Lincoln and the members of his family. During her first Commonwealth tour of Australia inthere were times when it all became overwhelming. The women he could persuade.
