Queen Elizabeth II 1926-2022

In tribute to an amazing lady who saw wars, 15 prime-ministers and 70 years on the throne surpassing her great (great) great grandmother Victoria. Never, ever will we see her like again. A servant to the country who always put duty first. There are far more detailed and eloquent eulogies about her online now however this is from the heart. May she rest in peace and may Charles as the new king show every ounce of her grace, subtlety and elegant restraint allied to serious political knowledge and nouse. This thread is absolutely in praise of our beloved queen, gone but never forgotten.

I enjoy these kind of insights. Shows just how normal she was.

Right to the end, she always had the most dazzling smile.

Whatever one’s stance on the monarchy, she was class. Very difficult to live in the public eye and tougher if your entire family comes under the same scrutiny.

Sadder than I thought I’d be. I’m a commited English republican but still…I do admit to feeling a genuine sense of loss. My mum had a lot of time for the Queen. Perhaps that’s the reason. My thoughts are with her family

Just a thought MODS but would a black band in the title thread be a bit more fitting… as an instant reminder sort of thing…

I remembered that the Queen was involved in the Scouts, as was I in my youth. Didn’t realize that her involvement carried on til her late years
