A SAD, SOMBRE DAY for the UK and Commonwealth.
Most of us have only known the reign of Queen Elizabeth for as long as we can remember. Whatever your views on the monarchy she was arguably a remarkable woman – working tirelessly almost to her last day it seems. Spanning over 70 years she was a constant presence in the background of political, economical and natural change.
In an age where upstanding figureheads are painfully uncommon, she was an inspiration to many; her dignity, humility and graciousness won many hearts here in the UK and around the world. At times the Royal Family was controversial yes, but she was arguably the Queen for the people and the people loved her back.
A personal moment of loss for the Royal Family and many who felt they knew her, an era defining moment for the UK and its future.
