    I feel amazingly upset. I think as someone else said, she’s been the queen for as long as I’ve been alive, it’s an odd confusing feeling.

    RIP QEII.

    I wonder how much it will cost us to change all the banknotes and stamps, crests/badges on public and state institutions etc? Perhaps Charlie can go on Cash in the Attic see if he can raise a few quid from all her nick-nacks etc.

    A sad day, the country will be very different without her.

    i just said that to my daughter, she believed me for a moment. But then we thought….. I guess there are many things like that which will need changing. Postboxes for example….

    RIP.
    Hope her family were with her when she died.
    All external noise stopped where I am when the news was broadcast and it’s still absolutely silent.

    This is so sad. As others have said, I remember the street party for the Silver Jubilee. My thoughts are with her Children & Family

    It is sad imo but because it represents the end of an era, from now on things will look and sound a bit different – postage stamps will look different, news bulletins will be mentioning someone different. It will seem strange because it will be different.

    Although I am strongly supportive of a society were the people hold political and economic power I have never felt any animosity towards QE2. She did the job which she was born into, and pressurised into doing, well imo. The UK could easily have had a worse monarch, and her dedication was unquestionable. RIP

    I am not an ardent royalist, nor a staunch republican (as in someone who does not want a monarchy as opposed to GOP) however Lizzy was unique in her ability to transcend all of that and demand respect as a person outside of her role as Head of State in the UK. She also kept up with such massive changes across the years and did so with grace and ease. yes a little sad and the end of an era for sure…

    A sad day, not a surprise of course but I’m caught off guard by how affected I am by the news.  RIP.

    No royalist, but she did her job well and was probably the last of her kind. There’s not much “British” stuff I respect but she’s definitely one that deserved it

    I didn’t think it would bother me but have to admit the news has left me feeling very sad, even if it was inevitable.

    For all her palaces and luxuries, a life like the one she led would have been very difficult, constantly in the public eye. Yet she carried out her duties without a word of complaint, even if her heart must have sank every time she heard the phrase “And now Ma’am, a display of traditional dancing”. (-:

    RIP.

    Just come back from walking the dog and seen the news. Even though I’ve been expecting it all day I’m welling up a bit now.

    RIP Queenie. You’ll be missed. 🙁🙁

    Just to be known as ‘The Queen’ worldwide shows her reach and influence. Say The Queen anywhere and they’d know who you meant.

    Just home from a ride and was told the news as I entered the house. Very strange but I could sense something was not right, it was if the world went quiet.
    RIP Liz.

    I think that after everything she led a good life filled with service and duty. It’s a marked contrast to most of what we see today, and I think that people identified with that.

    Unfortunately the world is a shite place filled with horrible people. Which is why the daily mail will run a story in less that a week suggesting that the Harry & Meghan situation ‘hastened’ her passing
