RedHat Society Queens have a secret... Our secret is that it's really fun to be the Queen!
For a few precious moments each week or month, we don't have a care in the world as we commit to do as little real work as possible. We trail around in our finery, waving royally to the adoring crowds with our wonderful Chapterettes in tow. This is the role of a Queen in the RHS. She is the spark. She is the heart. She starts the Chapter, gathers her court, and oversees fun stuff with her ladies. Then the real magic begins. A real pleasure in being the Queen is when all your ladies are gathered around you laughing, hugging and generally making merry!
When speaking of Queens, we feel compelled to share a story. Hatquarters, the headquarters of the Society, received a very gracious letter from a real Queen; the Queen of England. We had invited her to join our contingent for tea while we were visiting her beautiful country for the London New Year's Day Parade. Unfortunately, she had to decline. You can imagine her busy schedule. Her secretary told us that her schedule is booked one year or more in advance. But we, RHS Queens (faux and fabulous), have an advantage over this very famous Queen. We exist to promote fun, lightness of spirit and sisterhood. And although, we are sometimes booked a year in advance too, we are so blessed to be able to devote time to something that makes us happy as women. The RHS gives us an excuse to play even if it's just for a little while.
If you are an RHS Queen, we thank you for everything that you do to make the world more colorful.
