HM Visits Aberfan

The Queen visited Aberfan, Wales- her fourth visit since the town experienced a devastating landslide in 1966, killing 144 people. It was touching to hear one woman remark that in 1966, "The Queen promised she'd be back to re-open the school, and she was." HM officially opened the Ynysowen Community Primary School and attend a service of thanksgiving at nearby Ebbw Vale's Christ Church. There, she made her only speech of her whole Diamond Jubilee tour, praising the courage and strength of the people in an area which lost a generation due to the disaster. The Queen looked positively radiant in a white coat, with a pastel blue lining, with a hat in the same colour. Oh my, everything was PERFECT in this outfit- the pattern on her coat, the wrapping effect of the hat, well done ma'am!
