What is to be “fit for a queen?” To me, it’s to find oneself in opulence. Exclusivity. Elegance. Tradition. In their purest forms, these are qualities we are drawn to – that we admire from afar but never really get to experience as, say, a queen would. There couldn’t be a better time to celebrate these qualities than on Queen Elizabeth the Second’s Diamond Jubilee. These are places I’ve visited that remind me of these qualities, but they are also stark reminders that while they are nice to look at and experience while on vacation, they are a daily reality to one in every million.
Akasaka penthouse view that’s fit for a queen. You haven’t seen Tokyo until you’ve seen it from up here.
Private yacht in the British Virgin Islands. Need I describe how it’s fit for a queen?
St. Basil’s Cathedral and all it’s esoteric opulence; visited by queens throughout history.
