Queen Elizabeth II has died. Aged 96, she reigned for 70 years.

Sad news. She wasn't my Queen but I did respect her.

Indeed. King Charles will have his hands full rising to his mother's legacy. Ain't gonna be easy.

Wondered if he was going to stick with Charles, but it's now confirmed by the Palace. Was kinda hoping he'd switch it up. *shrug*

I was kinda hoping for something like King Bonehead Bloodsucker III or something fun like that.

I just looked it up and he is almost as old as the Queen was on the throne. 73 and taking the helm is going to be fun for him. I'm just spitballing here, but he won't have the throne as long as his mother did.

Not even close, and neither will William.

She was a universal constant in a chaotic world. I respect that feeling of continuity between the ages.

Loved the Queen, may she Rest In Peace.

Now that the Queen is gone it is time to pitch the lot of them. We sure should do that here in Canada, tired of our tax money going to prop up, rich, useless figure heads.

Hate to tell you this, but such things are a fact of life … unless you want outright anarchy!

And then taxes won't matter, because the anarchists will just steal all your stuff.

The royal family has no input on law and order in Canada.

Hell, the royal family has no input on law and order in the UK, either!

Edit: Also, why do I now have Major Charles Emerson Winchester the third in my mind all the time?
