RIP, Queen Elizabeth

As you may have heard by now, Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen of Australia, New Zealand, the UK and 12 other countries, passed away yesterday in Balmoral Castle, Scotland, at the age of 96. She had reigned for 70 years, 7 months and 2 days; the longest reigning British monarch and the second longest reigning sovereign monarch of all time whose exact dates of reign are known. She was also Head of the Commonwealth and Supreme Governor of the Church of England, a woman of strong duty and faith. For most of us she is the only monarch we have ever known. She will be missed by many. I don’t think I’ve ever felt as sad or sombre at the passing of a public figure as I do now.

Rest in eternal peace, Your Majesty.

The Queen is dead. Long live the King!
