My Unusual Connection to The Queen

My Parents — Photo from The Author’s collection

My mom looked a lot like Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. The picture above was taken in the early 1960s, as my parents began their life together as missionaries to Japan.

Many people in Japan noticed the resemblance, and my mother was often asked if she was not, really, The Queen.
