@aaminatz Legoland’s tribute to our late Queen Elizabeth II makes me a little emotional – with the carpet of flowers, the notice of her death on the palace gates and the flags flying at half mast over Windsor Castle and the Palace of Buckingham #windsorcastle #buckhouse #Buckinghampalace #kingcharles #royalfamily #miniland #legohouse #lego #londonlandmarks #londonarchitecture #londonskyline #floraltribute #legosculpture #berkshire #palace #harryandmeghan #williamandkate God Save the Queen – UK – Ian Post
