As you know by now, Queen Elizabeth II died yesterday at the age of 96. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days is the longest for any British monarch. Unless you’re 71 or older, Elizabeth was queen for your entire life. Now begins the reign of King Charles III.
My ancestry is British. According to Ancestry.com, I’m 87 percent British. I’m also ten percent Irish so there’s some UK in there too. So I feel a bond with England, especially when it comes to music and comedy. Food, not so much. Who wants beans for breakfast?
Anyway, I like the monarchy. I like that it’s a constitutional monarchy. I admire Queen Elizabeth and believe in my heart she was good for the United Kingdom and the world. I admire her strength and resolve. And I don’t dread the reign of King Charles. Besides, it’s not like we have a choice in the matter. I think he’s going to be a good king. He had a great teacher. It could be worse. At least it’s not Andrew.
