During her service life people wanted to take photos and it is good to see that in her semi retirement in Dubai she is still attracting attention. 

Her design is second to none (in my opinion)
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

It is nice to see her surrounded by all those low boats and ships, allowing her to stand out and look regal. If this is how she is likely to be surrounded in future too, that will be to her great advantage.
