Ok, so there is no real "Queen Loda" in existence (other than on Facebook). But the figure on the left just looked the part. A queen of sorts reluctant to take part in the  the excited escapades of the squirrel behind her.

Normally, we hear of queens being reluctant to be betroth to a kings they never met prior. But, in one case, it is the parents that are reluctant:

"In 1946, Philip asked King George VI for his daughter’s hand in marriage. The king agreed on one condition – that the formal announcement of the engagement was delayed until Elizabeth turned 21 the following April. According to reports, both the king and his wife Queen Elizabeth were reluctant to approve the marriage out of fear that their daughter was “too young”." Source: Historyextra.com
