What is there to say?
There is perhaps no other figure that has endured in the public spotlight as brightly as Queen Elizabeth. Her passing yesterday at the age of 96 drew understandable media scrutiny, but what surprised me the most, though it probably shouldn’t, was an article that stated some 90% of the people alive today have lived while she was queen.
Queen Elizabeth, it should be noted, became Queen on February 6, 1952, meaning that she held the title for an incredible 70 years.
As I noted, a figure that has endured in the spotlight for so long… its going to be strange with her presence no longer around.
