I’m really sad to hear that members of the Royal family have been called to the Queen’s Scottish residence, Balmoral, this afternoon, as she has been placed under medical supervision.
Oh my god as I write this I went to check the time of that press release and it’s been updated…. To show our Queen has died. 💔
I can’t believe it. It’s a real shock as she doesn’t seem to have been ill, not that we know of. It seems like the family may not have made it in time. So very sad.
Elizabeth II held the longest reign in British history, for 70 years. She was just 25 when she came to the throne in 1952.
She was the Queen of 15 nations and head of the Commonwealth of 54 countries.
She has been one constant in an ever changing world. It’s the end of one of the most remarkable reigns in the British monarchy.
I’m trying to type as they speak on the BBC and they said that she said this at the start of her reign and again at her Platinum Jubilee.
Throughout all of my life with all of my heart, I will try to be worthy of your service.
What lovely and powerful words. I’ve often thought how hard her life must have been constantly in the public eye.
Flags are being lowered. I took a photo of the tv to show this lovely rainbow as this flag was lowered on BBC News.
Charles is now our King and head of state and Camilla is Queen Consort.
I wanted to go on and talk about an 85 year old man I met at work today. He really inspired me and I told him that he was an inspiration. It’s doesn’t seem the place to talk about him just now.
I’ve never been a massive royal but this is the end of an era and a very sad moment and huge change for our country.
The BBC have advised we will receive a statement shortly from our new King. Even saying those words are so surreal. We’ve only ever had a Queen.
Stay very safe everyone ♥️🇬🇧♥️
