Hello my dear, 
Our newsletter this week comes to you the day the world stopped to watch Queen Elizabeth II funeral and pay its respect to Her Majesty one last time. Who knows me can understand how important it is to me to share this small tribute here, since my first time in London (back in 2009) I fell in love with Great Britain and its traditions. 
The first real #Girlboss, the Queen has been globally revered and widely beloved. May she rest in peace and long live the King, Charles III!

From Edinburgh...

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-reigning monarch, died on 8 September, at home in Balmoral, aged 96.

On Sunday 11 September, the Queen’s coffin was brought from Balmoral, where she died peacefully, to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, where it rested in the Throne Room until the following afternoon. 

On a visit to Edinburgh, in 2014, I saw and felt a little bit of what it is the "land of the misty cloud, land of the tempest loud, land of the proud and brave, land of the free ". Below, I'm in the middle of the ruins of a gothic Abbey on The Palace of Holyroodhouse - Her Majesty The Queen's official residence in Scotland and one of the most beautiful and magical places I've ever been.
From Edinburgh to London, the Queen's Coffin traveled from Scotland by Royal Air Force aircraft, accompanied by the Princess Royal, before being conveyed to Buckingham Palace and the next day, Westminster Hall.

As Queen Elizabeth II's coffin rested in the revered Westminster Hall until last Thursday (sept 15), thousands of people filed a line miles along the River Thames. The crowds were flocking to the capital to say goodbye to the country's longest-reigning monarch.
Queen’s funeral took place in Westminster Abbey, the same historic church in which she married the Duke of Edinburgh in 1947, and where her Coronation was held six years later. 
This morning, after the service, the Queen’s returned to the State Gun Carriage for a procession to Hyde Park Corner, with the royal family once again following behind. At Wellington Arch, the coffin was transferred to the state hearse to travel to Windsor. 
Meanwhile, #LFW is happening but many shows were canceled as a mark of respect including Burberry's and Raf Simons'.

... to Windsor

The charming city of Windsor is famous for receiving an illustrious visit from none other than Queen Elizabeth II on weekends. As it is located just 40km from London, I couldn't miss the opportunity to visit it - a worthwhile day trip for anyone visiting the UK.

We'll Always Remember 

Did you know? Princess Elizabeth was called "Lilibet" by close family, a nickname she got because she couldn't pronounce her own name. Her father, King George VI, used to say, "Lilibet is my pride. Margaret is my joy." On the blog: 11 Things You Might Not Know About #GIRLBOSS the Queen.
