Her majesty: Remembering the magnificence of Marilyn
How best to describe the meeting of Marilyn Monroe and Queen Elizabeth: Worlds collide? Opposites attract? Or big sisters (very big) in the sorority of celebrity? The two women might be more similar than commonly supposed. The actress died 50 years ago in Los Angeles. The monarch became the latest Bond Girl 10 days ago in London. Go ahead and laugh at the comparison. But will Elizabeth’s fame endure a half century after her death as Marilyn’s has?
