It is with sadness that I report the passing of Queen Elizabeth II the UK's longest serving monarch, a great lady who served the country well.

    I'm not a royalist though, looking at other countries' alternatives, it's certainly not the worst.

    But the late queen has long impressed me with her total dedication to service and duty. She has set a great example to us all right up to the end.

    Yes definitely an impressive woman much deserving of our admiration. The only MOnarch the vast majority of us have ever known.

    I doubt she had much of a life herself 70 years😯 incredible.

    RIP Elizabeth 2nd

    I must admit that when I heard the news I was quite sad as she was a mum and grandmother and has served the country well with no scandals of her making although many of her children have certainly made up for it and she was amply rewarded but I do think it’s time privilege and monarchy ends with her.

    RIP Elizabeth 2nd
