It seems like the Queen is very ill and doctors fear the worst.

The words London Bridge are being used a lot on Twitter and if that starts happening, then you know that she is either in her last hours or she has passed.

Announced just now that she has passed.

Bollocks. I was hoping she'd last until I get out so I didn't have to work the funeral. I didn't expect her to outlast Phillip by long. Well, she was a working royal all her life and did the best she could for her country as she saw it. I've heard worse epitaphs.

The footage we have of her during the 1947 Royal Tour - most of it in colour - is quite amazing.

Because she died at Balmoral, my understanding is that she will lie in state in Edinburgh (Hollyrood), rather than going down to London. I've never really looked into the ins and outs of it, but the whole thing is called Operation Unicorn. If anyone is interested, I'd imagine at least some details of it will be available online.

One of our more belligerent political parties, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) issued this statement to express their feelings on her passing.

Strange they do not blame her for everything wrong in Africa as though everything is her fault.

And then there was this tweet from this twit  :hatred:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11194501/Jeff-Bezos-slams-Carnegie-Mellon-professor-vile-tweet-ailing-Queen.html

I will admit that I was never a fan of the Queen - due to her silence after Princess Diana's death - but that tweet is beyond vile.
