A sad day and the end of an era. She gave this country tremendous service and a stability the likes of which I fear is not going to be replaced, especially when you look at the politicians now in charge.

Very sad day.
I feel like I've lost my grand ma.

Rest in Peace Queen Elizabeth II.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

It may not surprise some of you on here, but i have been banned off Facebook for having a go at someone for his comments about our Queen. Yet him and many others are allowed to continue spilling their bile. Disgusting.

They should watch some of the old news reels about Elizabeth II and maybe they would learn a thing or two about grace and dignity.
Too much to expect I suppose.

Exactly, they are just ignorant. You don't have to be a Royalist (i am) to show respect to a 96 year old who as passed away.  At the end of the day she was a mother,grandmother, Great grandmother etc. Don't understand some people's thinking and hatred, shame really.

it's all freedom of speech, however many people don't understand dignity, decorum, respect etc.

The adage "sometimes it's better to say nothing" springs to mind.

Really sad; my wife and I.

I'm actually shocked at how strongly I feel. Like many of you I'm not a Royalist but I much prefer our current status to that of a Republic. (After all, Cromwell was a power mad d1ckhead!)

She was the best ambassador and servant to our country that you could ever have.
RIP Queen Elizabeth II. God Save King Charles III.

This thread is for offering condolences on the death of Queen Elizabeth II, to celebrate her life. Not a chance to debate and criticise people. Lets keep it simple everyone

Still in shock today, went out to get a few bits for my daughter and I’ve never known an atmosphere so somber.

I’m really surprised how much this has hit me and I can’t put my finger as to why. It’s a bit disconcerting to be honest.

When my dad passed, the were only a few words of comfort I hung onto, and they keep bouncing round my head today, and as fellow baggies you’ll understand why:


   The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want;
  He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; He leadeth me
  The quiet waters by.

As a few have said it’s hit me in a way I didn’t think it would.

Whether it’s just evoking old memories of losing my grandparents, or father, I don’t know but its strange how emotional it’s actually made me

I couldnt sleep last night so watched TV and they were showing old film footage of the Queen. I am not ashamed to say I shed a few tears.

Just wondering what’s going to happen to the Queen’s corgis. Will our new king be purchasing some Cavalier King Charles spaniels!

I'm not a huge royalist by any means, I'm not against them either. On balance I'm more pro than than con. I understand people have different views about our monarchy and I don't have a problem with that.

I think at a time like this, whatever views people have, all should at least show some respect for a 96 year old lady that has represented her country for seventy years and has lost her life. Anyone that can't act with dignity and show that respect needs to have a long look at themselves because it doesn't make them much of a human being does it?

As for whether sporting events shouldve been cancelled over the weekend, I can see both sides of the coin here. Authorities are damned if they do, damned if they don't. My only issue is, if they are going to have period of mourning shouldn't that have been extended all round?

I think having a bank holiday for the funeral I completely agree with and ALL companies, emergency services aside, should be made to fully honour that bank holiday, no running on skeleton shifts.

R.I.P.  your majesty and thank you.

Excellent post, personally I look upon royals as I do with people in other walks of life some deserve our respect and some don't, the Queen without a shadow of a doubt deserves our utmost respect and gratitude for leading the country for over 70yrs going above and beyond.
Thankyou your majesty we were truly blessed to have you as our Queen.
