Britain's Princess Elizabeth (right) and her sister, Princess Margaret, watch their carrier pigeon circle in the sky after they have released it with a message for Lady Baden-Powell Feb. 20, 1943. It was one of the many messages sent by Girl Guides throughout Britain on Thinking Day which marks the Birthday late Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the Scout movement. Britain's Girl Guides have dropped a reference to God in their pledge. Gone is the reference to loving God, replaced by a call to “be true to myself and develop my beliefs.” The new pledge unveiled Wednesday June 19, 2013, does retain a reference to serving the queen.
