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

I think it's been said that Andrew will take care of them, but i cannot vouch for that.

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.
Emergency Services and Key Workers Bus Drivers so on, shops to just so people can buy Bread and Milk and get to Work and Pilots and Cabin Crew just because we are having a Bank Holiday doesn't mean the Americans or French are someone needs to fly a 777 to JFK

R. I. P. Queen Elizabeth 11
My wife and I have tenious links to the Queen because I was born in February 1952 a very important month for her
My wife and I were married on 20 November, same day the Queen & Prince Phillip got married, we didn't realise that at the time though.
A few years ago upon a family Christmas holiday that I used to take us to Scotland every year, we stayed in Ballater and went to Craithie kirk only to find that the Queen & Phillip & Charles decided to join us on that Christmas morn
A lovely and special Christmas for my wife and young children.
We have great respect for her and thank her for her incredible service to this country.

I'm grateful all COVID restrictions have gone and we can have a proper state funeral.

A Queen Elizabeth II Tale

Members of the Household Cavalry were on Guard of Honour waiting for the King of Saudi Arabia on Horseguards.

Right Flank Scots Guard (100 guardsmen) gap HM Queen mounted in uniform and CO, Col Gerald, then Queens Company Grenadier Guards(100 guardsmen).

They were stood at ease waiting. Col Gerald's charger (horse) erupted with horse poo, full volume for two minutes. Col Gerald says, "Sorry about that your Majesty!"

She replies in a wonderful voice, "That's alright Gerald, I thought it was your horse!"

200 guardsmen silently cried with laughter and tapped their rifle butts on the gravel. From that moment every man there adored her!

So typical of our late Queen 😂😂😂

The Poet Laureate, has written, through the metaphor of the Lily of the Valley, the Queen's favorite flower, a poem to mark the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Floral Tribute by Simon Armitage

Evening will come, however determined the late afternoon,

Limes and oaks in their last green flush, pearled in September mist.

I have conjured a lily to light these hours, a token of thanks,

Zones and auras of soft glare framing the brilliant globes.

A promise made and kept for life - that was your gift -

Because of which, here is a gift in return, glovewort to some,

Each shining bonnet guarded by stern lance-like leaves.

The country loaded its whole self into your slender hands,

Hands that can rest, now, relieved of a century's weight.

Evening has come. Rain on the black lochs and dark Munros.

Lily of the Valley, a namesake almost, a favourite flower

Interlaced with your famous bouquets, the restrained

Zeal and forceful grace of its lanterns, each inflorescence

A silent bell disguising a singular voice. A blurred new day

Breaks uncrowned on remote peaks and public parks, and

Everything turns on these luminous petals and deep roots,

This lily that thrives between spire and tree, whose brightness

Holds and glows beyond the life and border of its bloom.

Rest in Everlasting Peace, Your Majesty

God Save The King!

A truly wonderful poem, albionfan
Fit for Elizabeth the Great
A remarkable, perceptive woman who kept her promise to us, she was Queen of the world.

Rest easy ma'am, time for the 'young un' to do his bit. There can't have been a longer apprenticeship in royal history....... a true mark of your legacy as we move forward.

Whatever anyone may think about our politicians and the state of our public services, nobody can organise pomp and ceremony quite like the British.

Wonderful service yesterday which was absolutely perfect, makes you proud to be British.

I heard this story on the radio the other day that made me laugh out loud. Some of you will be aware of it but it just shows what a lovely person the Queen was.
