    It's sad I loved the queen But I was very disappointed the way she and the firm treated Diana and Harry. You know Harry is still hurt of what happened to his mother, may god guide harry and his family Amen.πŸ†—πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡±πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

    I cannot believe how many tears I have already shed…. It has been an era to honour and remember- some of which I wasnt born to endure or celebrate. Howeaver I mourn it all the same. Your late father…mother…husband… Will all be more than proud of you and your life. Thank you Ma'am.

    In Memorium of Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor (1926-2022), Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, daughter of King George VI…
    May her essence peacefully return to the universal abstraction that prescribes the cosmos as brilliantly as were the 70 years she ruled her noble Kingdom.

    This is how I see the death of Her Majesty. I see it in a historical perspective. That’s where it’s sad to me

  • Susan H. on September 10, 2022

    Whenever the Queen looked at her husband, she reminded me of a giddy young teenage girl. She glowed and sparkled. I will always remember the look she gave to Prince Phillip.❀

    We used to play dress up as little girls and fight about who got to be The Queen. She had an hourglass figure, and her gorgeous dresses seemed to fall down from heaven. A princess could wear them even today, they were so beautiful. She will go down in history, among many things, as the best dressed woman who ever lived and who ever will!

  • Chaw Abo on September 10, 2022

    the only bad things queen Elizabeth..did was , married off of princess daina and Charles … if they weren't married …princess daina would be alive now….

  • Misael Naj Jr. on September 10, 2022

    To be honest I see this program the only disrespect I saw to Diana is they never actnolage Diana's death and raise the flags to me that' was disrespectfull from the royal family and Charles to Diana and her family and country bien a bad husband unfaithful to me I think the royal family and Charles cause Princess Diana death but despite the queen was one of the monarch that suffered due to their children divorce yet she held her head high

  • Cade Cuda on September 10, 2022

    I came here for funny comments. I was very disappointed

  • Miki on September 10, 2022
