  1. I hope the Queen rests in peace. She lived a privileged life whilst many others around her didn’t. She used her influence to help some, but many went missed. She will truly be missed by those who knew her but those who claim they’re devastated by this whim probably saw her on TV once a year I see it as nothing more than attention seeking. RIP

  2. My Mother admired the Queen for her grace and dignity. She was one of my mother’s heroes. My Mom passed away six months ago. Now we have lost the Queen in the same year. I love you Mom. Truly a great generation they both belonged to.

  3. Funds are used by the Queen and other members of the Royal Family to pay for royal duties, such as receptions and garden parties and visiting schools. Last year, almost 2,300 official engagements were carried out.

    Travel costs rose by £1.3m to £4.5m, this included 26 journeys that cost more than £15,000 each. The most expensive trip, costing £226,383, was the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's tour of the Caribbean in March
    The worst is: Republic, an organisation that campaigns for an elected head of state, estimates that the total yearly cost of the monarchy, once security is factored in, is about £345m – several times higher than the Sovereign Grant. Imagine what that money could do for the underprivileged, disabled, elderly and orphans of this country I love and call home 🏡

  4. Queen Elizabeth was already Queen for twelve years before I was born. Throught my life the only constant was the Queen and without knowing I took her for granted. I believed she would simply be there for ever. Now we have lost her, the nation feels lost and unsure of the future.

    Without even seeing her, the impact she had on my life is only now coming to light. The feeling of loss and sadness is something I could not have anticipated.

    She once said grief was the price of loving. I hope she knew how much the nation loved her.

  5. her sevice to the people is done in secret to prevent political conflicts, with her influence over many countries she has prevented the UK multiple times from economic and political crisis and is the reason the UK stands tall today until covid kicked in of course. She fights for the peoples rights every week in her meatings with the prime minister and has done for 70 years. It is a shame that people will not acknowledge this and think instead that she sits on her throne all day when she really does not.

  6. 33 years old + like someone said, this is the last morning that I knew Queenie was alive.
    11pm now + it's so weird to not have a Queen anymore – such a weird time for me + other UK citizens.
    She will be greatly missed + her hard work that she done is still shining.

  7. "All life is transitory. A dream. We all come together in the same place at the end of time. If I do not see you again here, I will see you in a little while in the place where no shadows fall."

  8. I'm no Brit, but the fact that Queen Elisabeth is no longer is of great concern to me as continental European. Another constant is gone. Charles becomes King – well – but her end of reign shows the fragility of the whole western world and it's values, which are constantly further demolished and devaluated. 😮‍💨

  9. There was an amazing double rainbow appeared over the Windsor and Slough area at the exact moment it was announced on the radio she had died. It was quite an omen and something I will remember.

  10. For those whom don't understand English, here is the translation: Today our representative of Colonialism our Queen our master has passed away and we British promess to the Ancient Sacred Land of India NEVER to return or give back those precious dyamonds and stones our Loyal Family had stolen trought out the years.
    They are thieves therefore we all British are so too.
    Etc..etc..etc.

  11. el príncipe Guillermo es quien debe asumir el poder ………. por su juventud , por su carisma . a Carlos se le nota el cansancio de los años , no durará mucho . además el príncipe Carlos ahora Rey ? no tiene mucha aceptación .

  12. Most people here in Dundee are celebrating 🍾🥂 The city that voted overwhelmingy to leave the so called UK and isnt full of snivelling peasants. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

  13. The queen dies and the anti-monarchy campaigner Liz Truss becomes prime minister !! The crooks in London get worse by the week. You couldn't write it lol 🤣

  14. May she rest in peace she was another persons grandma just a grandma nothing more nothing less. Nothing special the world will move on. Like they always do, it wont affect peoples lives.
    People like to hear what they want to hear and close their ears to the truth.
