I heard the sad news of your passing today. Though the news have constantly mentioned your health issues from time to time, your passing today felt sudden to me.
I have only known you as the English monarch ever since I was a little girl. You have been our Canadian head of state for 70 years, a feat non parallel.
I guess change is never easy and me and the rest of your subjects will have to adapt accordingly.
You accepted the monarchy job, took it head-on and never looked back. You performed the job as Queen seriously and exuded class and respect, not only in the United Kingdom but also to the rest of the world.
I am sure that wherever you are now with your late husband Prince Phillip, that you will be humbly surprised by all the platitudes that are now poring in for you.
You deserve it, Your Majesty!
Thank you for your service and Godspeed!
