Queen Elizabeth II has passed and is now riding her horses with glee in the after life.
May Queen Elizabeth’s journey home be one of love and peace, for she has served us so well, for now, it is her time to sleep.
Born April 21, 1926 – September 9, 2022, the Queen a cherished Sovereign gave her all to her subjects, dedicating her life to being of services and representing Commonwealth in all she did.
She said, “My whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service.” and she gave her life to that service and did us proud. Now that King Charles 111 will replace her role, but can he replace her grace, tenacity, joy, humour and commitment to the people?
Let us reflect on our own service to life, our own commitment and passion in our purpose just as she did? Can we in our meaningful purpose be as diligent as she was, for she was an example of that diligence, dedication, grace and commitment like no other, can we rise ourselves up to represent something important in our own lives? The invitation is there, may we do it with the same respect, dedication, humour and grace as she did.
Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary; 21 April 1926 – 8 September 2022) was Queen of the United Kingdom from 6 February 1952 until her death.[a] Her reign of 70 years and 214 days was the longest of any British monarch and the second-longest recorded of any monarch of a sovereign country. At the time of her death, Elizabeth was queen of 14 other Commonwealth realms in addition to the UK.[b]
Elizabeth was born in Mayfair, London, as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth). Her father acceded to the throne in 1936 upon the abdication of his brother, King Edward VIII, making Elizabeth the heir presumptive. She was educated privately at home and began to undertake public duties during the Second World War, serving in the Auxiliary Territorial Service. In November 1947, she married Philip Mountbatten, a former prince of Greece and Denmark, and their marriage lasted 73 years until his death in April 2021. They had four children together: Charles III; Anne, Princess Royal; Prince Andrew, Duke of York; and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.
When her father died in February 1952, Elizabeth—then 25 years old—became queen regnant of seven independent Commonwealth countries: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon (known today as Sri Lanka), as well as Head of the Commonwealth. Elizabeth reigned as a constitutional monarch through major political changes such as the Troubles in Northern Ireland, devolution in the United Kingdom, the decolonisation of Africa, and the United Kingdom’s accession to the European Communities and withdrawal from the European Union. The number of her realms varied over time as territories have gained independence and some realms have become republics. Her many historic visits and meetings include state visits to China in 1986, Russia in 1994, the Republic of Ireland in 2011, and visits with five Popes. She reigned for 70 years and Head of State of 15 Countries welcomed UK’s 56 prime ministers at the time of her death.
Phillip came to me today,
and said it was time to go.
I looked at him and smiled,
as I whispered that “I know”
I turned and looked behind me,
All my Family were around me,
and I could hear them weep.
I gently touched each shoulder,
with Phillip by my side.
Then I turned away and walked,
with My Angel guide.
Phillip held my hand,
as he lead the way,
to a world where King’s and Queens,
are Monarch’s every day.
I was given a crown to wear
or a Halo known by some.
The difference is up here,
they are worn by everyone.
I felt a sense of peace,
my reign had seen its end.
70 years I had served my Country,
as the peoples friend.
Thank you for the years,
for all your time and love.
Now I am one of two again,
in our Palace up above.
Rest in peace 1926-2022
