  1. At least George and Charlotte are old enough to be able to have memories of her that will stay with them all their lives.
    RIP Ma'am. You kept your oath, stayed the course, and did the job.

  2. Did she ever apologize for colonialism…. Did she ever apologize for the brutish treatment her selfish brutish ancestors foisted on subjugated people… Shameful woman from shameful ancestors….

  3. A brilliant light and an intelligent woman has left us! Bless her and the family who has faithfully been loyal, supporting and devoted to her care and well-being. The world is in mourning!🥲

  4. She reigned over 2.4 Billion people in over 40 countries..I just can't begin to imagine the work and responsibility she and her whole family have been doing for so many years..and to do it so well to be loved truly by so many..If only the US could have a President fashioned after her.. Instead we have bitter name calling hatred spilled from their speeches that can infect so many in a negative destructive way..May this never befall the British Empire…Long Live The King..😘🎈

  5. To swear an Oath is not easy, since one will become bound to it. She ( as was ) swore it and fulfilled it. That, to my mind, is the epitome of a great human being. Name me any other human being that swore an Oath to their fellows and not broken it. Take as long as you like, until about 33 AD.

  6. May this Satanic-Masonic high priestess rot in the darkest pits of the abyss, slowing being annually raped and tortured by Set for 1,000 years. May she scream; may she suffer; may she weep tears that go unheeded.

  7. May this Satanic-Masonic high priestess rot in the darkest pits of the abyss, slowing being annually raped and tortured by Set for 1,000 years. May she scream; may she suffer; may she weep tears that go unheeded. Child murderer, child rapist, pedophile, mother of pedophiles. Suffer, suffer, suffer incarnate, suffer until your voice breaks and then suffer more.

  8. Acts 10:37-42
    King James Version

    37 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;

    38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

    39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:

    40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;

    41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.

    42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.

  9. HER DEATH MAY SIGNAL DEATHS OF LOTS OF WELL KNOWN AND PROMINENT OFFICIALS.. COULD JOE BIDEN OR NANCY PELOSI BE NEXT. OR MITCH MCCONNELL MAYBE HILLARY CLINTON OR OR MIT ROMNEY. JUST LIKE STORMS DEATHS COME IN BUNCHES NO 9NE KNOWS WHO WILL BE NEXT BUT YOU CAN COUNT UPON IT DEATHS WILL COME MANY TOP DEMOCRATS SHOW SIGNS OF COMING EVENTS
    NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE DEATH WILL COME. EVERYONE SHOULD PREPARE FOR THAT DAY.

  10. People were wondering when she was going to die; now they’re surprised that she has? People who have persisted in a dysfunctional relation with Royalty all their lives are now grieving, when they should be feeling foolish for having tolerated the oppressive class system emanating from the Royal Family and their opulent usurious parasitism.

  11. It's Strange I'm not British, I'm proudly American but this is my history as well, you have held your oath With Honor I made a monarch not seem like such a bad idea.

  12. She mistreated Diana, she is disgusting letting her son married the woman he had an affair with, she never shed a tear for Diana, Elizabeth not a nice person, u can see in Diana eyes the sadness that the royal treated her even the old hag

  15. She colonised us, our grandfathers died in her name, everything that has a beginning has an end, and there is a price for everything. She will have to pay in her afterlife!

  16. u need to check with real Indians in Asia about the atrocities carried out with her order. also, u need to know from where the word "BlackHole" came from and who approved BlackHole and cellular jail. also, she has never kept her promise on leaving colonized countries.

  17. 2 thoughts. 1- who would be so stupid to give their money to some family who does nothing good for the society? 2- nobody talks about this freaking alien voluntarily transformed itself into another life and continues controlling the earth?

  18. ⭐… "THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ERA ALWAYS PUTS AN END TO THE ONE THAT HAS PREVAILED UNTIL THEN" … … "KINGS AS WELL AS QUEENS AND SUBJECTS ARE EQUAL IN THE FACE OF DEATH, BUT THE AUTHENTIC ROYALTY THAT COMES FROM GOD, KNOWN AND TRANSMITTED TO THE WHOLE OF HUMANITY SINCE ANCIENT EGYPT LIKE A TORCH, NEVER DIES" … !!! … "WHEREAS IT IS BY HERITAGE THAT THE KINGDOM OF ANCIENT EGYPT HAS BEEN TRANSMITTED TO ISRAEL AND THAT IT IS THROUGH "KING JAMES" THE FATHER OF ENGLAND OF THE SAME ETHIOPIAN ORIGIN AND OF THE SAME DESCENDENCE FROM THE TRIBU OF "JUDA" THAT THE "ANCIENT EMPEROR HAIL SELASSIE I" HAS COME FROM THE BRITISH KINGDOM" … "AMEN" !

  19. —————————————————————— GOOD RIDDANCE ———————————————————————————-
    It will be a glorious day when the warmongering British Criminal Empire finally falls under the weight of its own corruption and spilled blood. They have become too heavy even for their lord Satan to bear.
