    i love how this video perfectly portrays each country’s mannerisms, germany being straight to the point, italy being somewhat laid back about it, france being elegant, while america fumbles it’s words

    Dedicated 70 years to her country. I don’t think there can be another monarch like the Queen. She’ll be greatly missed, it’s not going to be the same without her. What fascinated me is the timing of it all – that she passed so soon after greeting the new PM. It’s as if she had completed her final task and now can rest.

  4. Serious Enigma says:

    Truly the end of an era, there will be no other “royals” to reach that level of love and respect.

    • Chris Ducat says:

      Her line hasn’t ended but her era most certainly has. This woman has lead the UK and it’s other royal sovereigns since shortly after WWII, most of the world’s lifetime. It’s a monumental loss, literally.

    • Antisocial Hannah says:

      @Kris B We pay for the policing. We do not put money into the pockets of the royal family. 100% of the profits from the royal estates go directly to the government in the form of taxes and after TWO YEARS they get between 15% and 25% back. Think of it like a tax rebate that they have to wait 24 months for. Just because it comes from the government does not mean it’s money that you or I put there.

    • Orion Fernandes says:

      @Kris B The queen served the country, her people and the commonwealth until her last breath, I’m sure you wouldn’t be able to something worth even half that calibre.

    Many nations still have their own royal families but in almost every nation in the world if you simple say “The Queen” without qualifier they automatically think of the Queen of England, 96 years of life, more then 70 years as Queen, Wartime Ambulance driver, public servant, diplomat without equal, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother…. and as someone who has worked with soldiers who guarded and met her personally an all round nice woman i’m told.

  6. Alexei Smirnoff says:

    Amazing how she isn’t just “Queen of England” or “Queen of the UK” or “Queen Elizabeth” – she is just… The Queen.

    • Rose Hill says:

      @CaptainsHIGH Asan Aussie let me correct you. We are not owned. We stopped being a colony and gained independence in 1901.
      The Queen as head of state is a ceremonial position as we remained a commonwealth nation.

      @King Pop xd

    • Rose Hill says:

      @Steven He for commonwealth nations like New Zealand Canada Australia ect Queen Elizabeth 2 was head of state a ceremonial position only. She was not active in governance of those nations. the Prime minster governs the nation and is democratically elected.

  7. Female Celebrity Quotes says:

    “It has been women who have breathed gentleness and care into the hard progress of humankind.” – Queen Elizabeth

  8. mogznwaz says:

    Our iconic, unique, irreplaceable Queen was the true jewel in the Crown. Her death seems wrong – it felt as if she’d always been here and always would be, like the green hills and sparkling streams of Britain itself. My heart is broken. The Britain she leaves is unrecognisable from the one she was born into in many ways but she embodied its indomitable spirit. Duty, sacrifice, stoicism, grace, manners, humility, wisdom and humour – she epitomised the very heart of Britain and I fear we shall not see her like again. Rest in peace dear Elizabeth you shall be missed.

    “It has always been easy to hate and destroy. To build and to cherish is much more difficult” – Queen Elizabeth ll 💙
