The internet is full of tributes to the Queen, of her self-sacrificial sense of duty, her interest in people, her humility, her faith and so much more. Behind each of these was a dependence on her King and Lord. James Galea had the opportunity to meet the Queen and walked away with a better understanding of the King she served.

"Meeting the Queen of England was a moment in my life I will never forget. Now when I say, I met the Queen, it wasn’t a brief look or fleeting interaction. We had two meaningful conversations—conversations that I will cherish forever. And in each of these conversations I came away with, not only precious memories, but a deeper understanding and wonder of the King of Kings, Jesus Christ."
