For most, this will probably be the only time we see a new King or Queen on the throne in England.
Interesting that the lyrics of their National Anthem changed from God Save The Queen to God Save The King.


Wonder how long it will take for the money to change. In Canada everything has a a picture of the Queen.

Two moments in the coverage of Queen Elizabeth’s passing which caught my attention: The anecdote shared by her staff member in Scotland of two American hikers encountering her at a picnic asking if she’d met the Queen. She replied that she hadn’t but her staff member had. The Americans asked her to take their picture with the staff member, which she did. Then, the staff member offered to take their picture with her. Which they did. After they left, the Queen remarked that she wondered how their friends and relatives would react, seeing the pictures, and if they would inform them of her identity. The second was a group of mourners singing God Save the Queen being encountered by Charles, when a young woman raised her voice to sing God Save the King.
