Wonderful Weekends (State Portrait of Queen Ukulungile of Ophiri)

Queen Ukulungile of Ophiri is the ceremonial head of the indigenous people of what is the province of Ophiri. After a recent national referendum however, the traditional monarchy has been declared a symbol, not just for the province of Ophiri but for the entire country known as Greater Ophiri. Due to the ancient traditions of the original Ophiri Kindom, the sacredness of her office is such that she can't cross the borders of Ophiri and also doesn't allow many photo opportunities. As such most of her public appearances are left to her brother, Prince Shaka. However after the recent elections, the Queen who has grown her hair since her last photo sitting in 2011, has allowed this one State Portrait style photo to be released to the public. 

Her Majesty Queen Ukulungile XXXVIII of the Kingdom of Ophiri.

Queen Ukulungile is quite the progressive monarch for this very traditional monarchy. She has already, successfully abolished the sexist female-only line of succession to the throne and is said to be challenging the outdated customs of keeping her stranded within the borders of Ophiri. The new constitution is requiring her to move outside the borders of the original kingdom and as such may set precedent for her leaving the country as well. We will be very excited to have her mount the world stage with full exposure. It will truly shine forth the glory of the Africanian continent.

  1. Hello from Spain: I love your Majesty Queen Ukulungile. Is a Barbie? I had not seen before. I like the chair in black. The African continent is always very exotic. Keep in touch

    1. Hi Marta. Thank you for your comment. It is not a Barbie but rather a random doll from China. The quality isn't bad though.
