BREAKING BBC NEWS TV has announced Queen Elizabeth has passed away.

I know Most here may not like royalty, but I never mind it and found Her Majesty a good role model. I am sorry she has passed.

2. One of the few of the royal family that I admired. Such a shame and the world will be a sadder

place I think. Don't get me wrong, I am one of those that feel that because someone has royal blood, that somehow, they're better than the rest of us. They are not. A lot of abuses have happened in the past where 'royalty' has abused their rule.

3. Good Bless you, Ma'am.

You served with the greatest honor and elegance.

I think she is (was) the longest-reigning monarch in history. Not just British history, but world history.

5. Not quite as long as Louis XIV of France

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_XIV

He was 72 years, 100 days (starting age 4); she was 70 years and a few months.

6. King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand

He was the world's longest-reigning monarch when he died in October 2016. His reign lasted 70 years and 126 days. He is now third on that list, behind Louis XIV and Elizabeth II (he was Rama IX). I spent some time in Thailand during his reign. The Thai people revered him, and I won't say he didn't deserve the adoration. I never heard a bad word about the man and I have no doubt he was a good guy. He was born in Boston, which I suppose means he was technically a native-born U.S. citizen. I've always admired Queen Elizabeth II too. Bless her heart. All my life she's been "the Queen" and in a sense I've always considered her our Queen too. We're still "the Colonies" after all. Now that we don't have a Queen any more I find that I'm suddenly feeling as if there's something wrong. Just wrong. Hard to describe, but that's the weird way I'm feeling.
