King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, parents of the current Queen, in rubble after Buckingham Palace was bombed in 1940. #WWII
The King and Queen, who were in residence, were about to go down to the palace's shelter when they were shook by bombs. Fortunately, they were unhurt. Spot Winston Churchill inspecting the rubble!
The King and Queen refused to leave London despite the bomb raids. After Buckingham Palace was bombed, the Queen was to comment: "I'm glad we have been bombed. Now I can look the East End in the face." East End of London (the Docklands) suffered extensive damage in #WWII
