Not much I can comment on. As far as I've seen, she was a perfectly nice woman, who just got a lot of shade thrown at her for being royalty, but again, I'm an American looking in from the outside, so maybe there's more people in the know would be able to tell me.

Oh well. More taxpayer money soon to be wasted away not going on the NHS and other public services yet again. She had a gd run. Unlike so many under the poverty line who's lives are going to only get much worse.

Fair play to her, she hung on as long as she could to stop her idiot family from taking the throne. Got to respect that.

TV and radio is going to unbearable for the next month. Thankfully I have plenty of other stuff to keep me distracted. Also, may get bank holidays for the funeral and coronation of whichever dipshit is next on the throne.

I'm not a royalist in case you hadn't guessed. But R.I.P Queenie.

Yeah, nothing personal against the woman, but the institution she represents really does need to go the way of the dodo. And by that, I mean eaten by hungry sailors.

Unless something's changed (and given all the scandals, it may well could have), Prince Charles is next in line, I believe.

I have been informed from other sources that there may actually be reason to dislike Queen Elizabeth, for the record. Apparently, soon-to-be King Charles was naughty with some people of an inappropriate age, and the Queen covered it up to protect the family image. If true...yikes.

You'd have thought that with all their money, the royals could pay for their own funerals.
Ex-fucking-actly. They're not short of a few bob. Yet someone close in my family died recently and we still had to borrow money to get the most affordable funeral for them, which only caused even more problems.

I mean its not like the conservatives would have spend that money on those things even if they didn't need to pay for the funeral.

True, I was going by their own stated logic for defunding public services as there being "no magic money tree" no money there's just no monies, sorry.

Twitter is a cesspit of hatred though, I learned of this while checking my gaming feed and people are making up brutal shit just to shit talk this lady. The internet was a mistake.

Imagine waiting to become King. Only for your mom to live 100 years and you get the throne at 73.
