  • This statue is in memory King George VI & Queen Elizabeth, the father and mother of the present Queen of United Kingdom. As well as being the father of the queen, he's often remembered as the brother of Edwards VIII, whose abdication led to King George's succession. He was the King of the United Kingdom during the Second World War and famously chose to stay in London instead of evacuating to somewhere safer. The statue of King George VI depicts him in his naval uniform underneath a cloak. In his left hand he holds the hilt of a sword, with the point resting on the ground. While the Queen mother stands on a lower plinth. A beautiful statue and worthy tribute.
  • The King's head needed a thorough wash since some birds thought it was a good place to perch. ;) Great spot.
