RIP The Duke of Edinburgh


Recommended Posts

It is all over the news over here.

Political campaigning for local elections has been cancelled. There will be mourning for about a month.

And it is good that it will be President Biden who sends condolences and not you know who.

Sigh.  How long will the Queen outlive him? 


RIP, sir.

That is a concern.

But if she lasts for at least 3 and a half years she will be the longest reigning monarch.

I also wonder if she will choose to abdicate after the period of mourning is over.  She'll be 95 in less than 2 weeks.  No one's going to say much if she chooses to do so, after this has happened.  


Whenever her reign ends, voluntarily or not, it will close an era.

Abdicate is a word you don't use around the Queen. Her uncle did and that made her father King. It left bad blood behind. The Queen is driven by duty so no abdication.
