Queen Elizabeth II has died.  Still stoically performing some duties right to the last, she will be missed by many.

RIP
Its not how old you are, but how you are old. 💖

Whatever your opinion of the Royal family, she was a remarkable lady who deserved respect.

Downhill from here , but I think Andrew is in trouble.

A well respected Lady.. She served our country well..
She never let us down.. Very sad.
How strange hearing the words 'His Majesty the King'..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

Right, no Emmerdale tonight then, but luckily I've got yesterday's to watch.

A friend of mine has said it looks like she'll be having an early night so I reminded her that she has Netflix.

I didn't say I didn't respect her, I said she had no significance in my life.

I agree that she did a very decent job of shaking hands, greeting people & opening new buildings etc.

Even though I'm a staunch Republican I can promise that I'll never forget this very special day as long as I live.

It's a day that will forever be in my heart as it's the day that our Mum cat died back in 2017 & that's why it's special, to me.

You are not even funny with your stupid disrespectful remarks..
They are disrespectful.. And it would be better if you just shut up..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

Some are suggesting the King will take the name George VII.

Scrumpy

It has been revealed by Liz Truss that he will be called Charles .. I hope I heard that right.

Exactly.  If those are your views Diasi, please just keep quiet.

One blessing is that it seems to have been pretty quick. Something I expect we all hope for when our own times come.

To me she was the Queen throughout my life having become so when I was a baby. She gets my respect for sticking with her job to the very end. I'd rather an effectively powerless hereditary head of state than a short term political president for sure.

I've heard the name Charles III used on radio today but given the history of the first two it wouldn't surprise me if Charles decided to become George VII. A man who has spent his entire life waiting to take up his job. I hope as monarch he I see more guarded with his opinions th as n he was as Prince of Wales.

We live in a time when intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won't be offended

I would like to echo those sentiments.

If I were he, I would take George VII, but that is a matter for him.

We shall now replace all the policemen's helmets and many public signs.

But since we live in a so-called democracy I will not shut up as I'm entitled to express my views.

I accept that my comments on the topic may offend, just as many of your comments on the topic offend me.
