She's had a good life. Had to deal with many assholes in her time. End of an era in the UK.

She is 96. How many of us will live to be that age, and in decent shape as well.

She had a good charmed life.

She had a good run, but yeah the moment is always sad either way. My great grandma made it to 94 before she passed. It felt like she would make it past 100 as she was tough as nails, but at that age once the body starts to go, there's no turning back.

Charles can finally take over and be the active monarch he's wanted to be and then run the monarchy into the ground. He's got a good 20 years based on familial history.

So normal. When one member of an old, long time married couple passes, the other one soon follows.

Queen passed away this afternoon.
Saw that on BBC. " The Queen is dead, Long live the King."

As an American, this doesn't really matter to me, and I never really understood the British system of Monarchy with a ruling Parliamentary system.

It will take some salad forks to the back but I see a path to King Louis of England. :p

She had a good life, but sad nonetheless. My favourite story of her is when she brought a saudi prince for a tour around the palace - and she drove!

Nothing sad about living in relatively good health till the age of 96. Never met anyone who's lived forever, and in good health at 96 in bed surrounded by family is basically like the top 1% as far as ways to die.

Oh, and you think they'd tell you if you had? Good way to get stoned or disappeared, that is

-Que "Queen an eternal? Caught sipping mai tai on beach in Thailand" conspiracies in 3...2...1...

Edit: Also, good way to get stoned? Is this where all the people in parks and back alleys offering free drugs they promised us in D.A.R.E are supposed to come from?

Meanwhile, the Saudis jailed up the woman who advocated for Saudi women to be able to drive for three years.

Harry was late.

And the press sure keeps tabs on the royals over there with hawk eyes. I mean getting GPS tracking data to report on how late one of them is....

the queen has visited my city 4 times:

London, England - a major global city with huge historical, scientific, cultural, and economic significance

London, Canada - it has cars and shit, they go vroom vroom.

Not really that surprising. After the blatant racism that the British press expressed regarding his marriage it's not really that surprising that he was late and she didn't come with him.
