HM Queen Elizabeth II, 1926-2022
“I am, like everyone else, immensely saddened by the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her devotion to duty and service to this country, as well as those of the Commonwealth, is something that was admired by people the world over.
My generation was lucky to have her in our lives as someone who brought us all closer together and bridged divides.
A ray of light in a sometimes very dark world.
What a great woman.
She will be truly missed.”
“I’m very sad. Elizabeth was a great and strong Queen. But I am happy to have Charles as King. He is a good man. So I have conflicted emotions. Elizabeth’s funeral will be a turning point for our country. It’s time to think about how we want our future to unfold. There is always hope.”
