Queen Elizabeth II rejects the title Old Man of the Year

Britain-ALSHARQIYA October 20: Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, at the age of 95, "politely but firmly" refused to be honored with the "Oldie of the Year" award because she does not feel old.
And the Queen's family in Britain announced in a statement that Elizabeth II "is as old as she feels".
The Queen's private secretary, Tom Laing Baker, wrote to the magazine presenting the award, "The Oldie", stating that Elizabeth II "does not believe she meets the relevant criteria to be able to accept it".
According to the letter, Elizabeth II "hopes to find a more suitable recipient" for the award.
The Queen's response contrasts with the abuse of her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, when he accepted the award with humor in 2011 when he was 90 years old.
On that occasion, he, who died last April at the age of 99, said: "Nothing is better for morale than remembering how the years go by - faster each time - and in any case, it is good that they remember you."
It is noteworthy that Elizabeth II, who was born on April 21, 1926, is the longest-lived Queen in British history and will celebrate her platinum jubilee next year to mark the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne.
Despite her advanced age, the Queen continues to fulfill her official obligations on a daily basis.
The 'Old Person of the Year' award has been presented for 29 years to seniors who have made remarkable contributions to society.
