:D Yes Lion Queen :clap: :clap: :clap:

One of the many Queens (Anne of Great Britain 1665 – 1714)
Capital with architectural structures like a flavorsome vegetable (Onion domes, found in Moscow, Russia)
Powerful Female leader (Catherine the Great from Russia, 1700’s)
A BBC series depicting the life of the Larkin family in the 1950’s in Kent
(The Darling Buds of May is the name of the series and Catherine-Zeta Jones is one of the actors in this BBC series)

= Anne Catherine

Thank you GG friends :gflower:
