The image of Queen Elizabeth as an (pictured) in wartime ambulance service uniform is more reflective of her reputation than that of her giving a Nazi salute as a child, writes Sarah Bradford. Love this picture for Queen Elizabeth II.
We usually see a very reserved Queen, but photos like this, taken during a state visit to Turkey in October 1971 when Her Majesty jumped ashore from a barge, are reminders that the Queen is quite capable of action when necessary.
HRM Queen Elizabeth II wearing the Oriental Circlet Tiara. This tiara was made for Queen Victoria in 1853 and was also called The Indian-Ruby-Tiara. It was one of the favourite head jewels of the late Queen Mother.
