The Queen's old home in 2005703 viewsI DO hope the Queen didn't ask to visit her old home when she made her anniversary visit - she'd be devastated to see the state it's in. The roof of the flat where I lived in 1957 overlooked the lovely garden we've seen on TV recently. I went back to that area in 2005 after the Verdala reunion and was much saddened to see the Villa Guardamangia is now semi-derelict (note the shutters upstairs). This is happening to many beautiful old and historic buildings.
