Our Queen died this month. This caused an immense outpouring of emotions , not only from the people of the British Isles, but much of the world. For 70 years she had been an icon of dedication, service and standards. Her death has caused massive change.
I say ‘Our Queen’ because I remember her coronation, for most of my life she has been Queen. And although I never had the pleasure of meeting her, there was something about her manner that made me feel I had. She was a rock. Through difficult times she kept her head and made the best of the situation. She was an example of a life very well lived.
‘Suddenly’ we have a King and will need new coins and stamps and symbols on our letter boxes! My everydayness has not changed, but a root, a foundation, a cornerstone has.
For several days we were joined together in sharing grief. On our street we popped out to share a minute of silent remembrance for her life. And then came the funeral, the ritual, the celebration, the regal precision and dedication of the procession. The grandeur of Westminster Abbey, to the lone piper and her favourite horse and dogs all present.
