The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (The Queen Mother) stand amid the bomb damage at Buckingham Palace during WWII. The Palace was a deliberate target for the Luftwaffe as their High Command felt that the destruction of the Royal Palace would demoralize the nation. But it had the opposite effect and the Queen was famously to utter "I'm glad we have been bombed. Now I can look the East End in the face."Laurel Orvis
