I am pretty sure this is a bromalaid of some sort. It has very rough edges on each leaf and spots. The bloom is a bright pink with bluish tips, very pretty. Thanks

I wouldn't know what anyone meant if they asked me what a Queen's Tear was. What you definitly have is a Billbergia LOL as to the species, to me it looks as close to my Billbergia nutans as you can get hence the identification.
