With that announcement, BBC proclaimed to the world, the end of the second Elizabethan era. London Bridge is down. The special code to all concerned that Her Majesty, Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II, has passed away peacefully, aged 96 at her Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
The whole wide world, is currently in mourning, each in their own way. Remembering Her Majesty’s life, as it might have affected or touched their lives, either directly or through her policies.
I have enjoyed speaking the Queen’s English, throughout my school years, to this very day. Listening to Her Majesty’s speeches, watching historical documentaries and news reports of her, has been amongst my passions.
Queen Elizabeth II, has always been a delight to observe and her sense of humour, has been a source of enjoyment, to all. Here’s a video, celebrating her down to earth moments.
We are lucky to be having all these wonderful moments, preserved for eternity, so readily available for us, here, online. We can always enjoy her special moments and remember how Her Majesty ruled over the people’s hearts for so long.
She set the benchmark of how a true Head of State should be. Always dressed so immaculately and decent. Her articulate manner of speech, delivered in her crisp, correct form of spoken English, resulted in the advent of ‘The Queen’s English’. The internationally accepted and recognised as the most perfect manner of speaking English.
Watch the following video and marvel at Her Majesty’s articulate manner of speech.
She has always been a joy to watch and listen to.
As a Muslim, I am obliged to state that when we hear of someone’s passing, I say, ‘From Allah, we came; to Allah, we return‘.
Every being is created by Allah the Almighty. To Him, we all owe our existence and our demise.
Queen Elizabeth II has passed. It’s now the beginning of the era of her successor, her eldest son, HRH King Charles III.
Here is His Majesty’s first televised speech to the whole world after becoming King of the United Kingdom and many other nations and Head of the Commonwealth.
May His Majesty, His Royal Highness, King Charles III be well and rule with wisdom and just to all his subjects.
