I know that lots of kids make and decorate crowns as an arts-and-crafts project when they’re little, but, I have to say, it feels a bit different when your kid–the daughter of an American and a Canadian Mennonite–does this while you’re all living in a country whose queen is currently celebrating her Diamond Jubilee. At least the colors are still red, white, and blue? Although I’m guessing that the colors are the result of a colonial past . . .
Funnily enough, most of the other parents huddled around the crafts table were also non-UK citizens. Maybe we should have staged a revolt!
I wonder if the queen is also planning to pair her crown with a bloody lip? If so, I know a good playground where she can get one.
