Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, Defender of the Faith

Sally Bedell Smith, author of Elizabeth the Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch, talks to Canada's CBC News about her new book, including the Queen's affection for North America. Meanwhile, Charles Moore eloquently reflects on the Queen's religious role, as exemplified by her recent remarks praising the "under-appreciated" Church of England. Truly it can be said that to be a subject of Elizabeth II is to have won first prize in the lottery of life.
