Lunch in Good Company

Well, no, I didn't have lunch yesterday with the Queen, but her portrait (above) was nearby while we ate. The dining room was in Victoria's Legislative Assembly Building and is one of Victoria's hidden dining jewels. Food, presentation and service were superb and prices more than reasonable. While the restaurant is meant for the convenience of legislators, it is open to the public. The Queen's portrait is in recognition of her Diamond Jubilee and is a smaller copy of the original that hangs in Ottawa. This one is displayed on the main floor of the legislature.

Do you suppose she takes off the crown or goofy hats when she jumps in the shower?
You can't picture the Queen just kicking back in a housecoat and fuzzy slippers sans crown lounging around in front of the TV at night. In my mind, she's always dressed in something regal.

I didn't know there was a restaurant at the Leg Bldg!

That is a case of the artist getting their subject just right.
