It is with some sadness that I inform you good people, that today the ninth of august that the united kingdom's Queen Elizabeth passed away. I am not a monarchist but she has been there for all my life so it is like losing the nations grandmother. Well she has been the longest reigning monarch in our last thousand years of history.

Thank you all for your kind words. I, and a majority of my countrymen and women, are terribly sad about our loss.
Elizabeth II was a mother, grandmother and great grandmother to us all and will be greatly missed.
RIP

During the Bicentennial here in Virginia I saw her in Charlottesville after her visit to Monticello. That’s Thomas Jefferson’s home for those of you in Rio Linda. Anyway as her motorcade passed me she looked right at me and waved her wave. It was great. I saw her again when she came to Richmond for the 400 anniversary of Jamestown. She was a great lady who devoted her life to the people of GB. End of an era.

I had read that Elizabeth was at a pheasant shoot and rung a wounded birds neck and some media went nuts on the next Sunday she had a pheasant feather in her hat and I thought what a great way to say stick it.she had a good run

If one were a praying type, it would be worth praying for King Charles; that he will be up to the enormous responsibility. And for the British security services as they prepare for the funeral and Charles' coronation.

We have lost a beloved Monarch.

The world has lost a wise, principled and exemplary leader, as well as a keen sportswoman.

As the Bible words it concerning the kings of Israel ......... "and she rested with her fathers". May that rest be peaceful. My condolences to all her countrymen.

The world needs more leaders who possess the dignity and grace she exhibited. And, while we're at it, a few more tough ladies like the Iron Maiden, Maggie Thatcher. You Brits did well in both those two.

Long live the king.

I was having dawn coffee with my mom this morning and we talked about the Q ueen's death and were both saddened by it. My grandmother, a native Bermudian, daughter of a Bermuda farmer, instilled in mom a love of the monarchy. Mom has been flying the Bermuda flag in recognition of the loss. Gil

The end of an era and the beginning of a new one. Whether Royalist or not she was without doubt one of the world's greatest Diplomats.

As for Charles; he is a keen Countryman and a keen conservationist. A friend of mine actually taught him the art of Hedgelaying which is something he does for outdoor recreation.

I recall being in the village of Ballater some few years ago which is the village closest to Balmoral Castle when HMQ (we'll see if that's censored!) did a ceremony to dedicate a new bridge in the village. The 'walkabout' was only really something that the locals knew about. I was there on holiday and a coach load of American tourists just happened by pure chance to be there also. Judging by the comments it sort of made the whole trip. I have faith in the new King doing a good job but I think that when William's turn comes that he will make our greatest Monarch. Lagopus.....
