Im sure a big part of the Queens popularity here is that we dont have to stress about the taxpayer implications of the monarchy, so its all of the pomp and pageantry and none of the politics, says Cocks. But also, I think were realizing shes an amazing example of girl power. She got her hands dirty as a mechanic during World War II . Shes been incredibly devoted to her public and charity work. She is the head of a challenging family and takes no B.S. from any of them. Most of all, she took a job because her country expected it of her, shes done it tirelessly for 64 years even when it negatively affected her personal life, and the only time shes ever slowed down is because she caught a cold at age 90-and-a-half . Its hard not to be impressed by her. Morgan agrees, telling PEOPLE that she also thinks her popularity has to do with the fact that shes been a part of pop web culture for more than half a century. Shes become one of those people who are simply part of the fabric of peoples lives, says Morgan. Shes one of the few living people who are both part of history and pop culture at the same time.
