Harvest

“But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.”

Princess Elizabeth, 21 April 1947

“I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service… But I shall not have strength to carry out this resolution alone unless you join in it with me, as I now invite you to do: I know that your support will be unfailingly given. God help me to make good my vow, and God bless all of you who are willing to share in it.” Princess Elizabeth, 21 April 1947
