A stroll beside river waters,
Gentle reflections deep, atmosphere so serene.
A lone swan, head held high, majestic posture.
Proud to serve the Queen.
Most regal of Nature’s wonders, portraying a graceful presence unique.
Until her passing, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II had prerogative over all swans in England and Wales.
The Queen maintained an officially appointed ‘Keeper of Swans’.
A ceremony takes place every Monday of the third week in July.
Thus establishing the strong link between the monarch and her majestic swans.
