21st April 1926 – 8th September 2022
We are deeply saddened that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has passed away and like so many people, both here in the UK and around the world, we are mourning the loss of an incredible and inspirational woman, who gave so much to the people she served.
Having lived in the town of Windsor for six years and started Tots of Crown from an apartment above the High Street, with a name in mind to associate with the Royal Family (‘Tots’ Children of the Royal Family ‘Crown’), the importance of the Royal Family and her majesty Queen Elizabeth II has remained a constant to me.
*View from my apartment*
Families of all backgrounds and ages walking the streets, visiting the castle in admiration for the Royal Family, their history, and values - including myself and my families who have visited.
My most treasured memory of the town is from the Queen’s 90th Birthday celebrations, where I attended the procession and took some pictures which I am delighted to share.

Before 1917, members of the British Family had no surname, only the house or dynasty to which they belonged. The name Windsor was officially adopted by George V, following the end of the first world war. It was then declared that all male descendants of Queen Victoria would bear the name Windsor. HRH Queen Elizabeth after marrying Prince Phillip of Greece became Elizabeth Mountbatten Windsor and the new King, Charles III and his grandchildren will continue to be the House of Windsor.
We wish to pay tribute to the life of Queen Elizabeth, from her service in World War II, the stability she has brought to the United Kingdom and how she modernised the Monarchy.

We join the nation, those in Commonwealth (including Singapore, my birth place (or hometown) and throughout the world in mourning the lost of our longest serving Monarch.
Rest in peace Your Majesty, you will be forever in our hearts. Thank you for everything. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family.
