It is sad to hear that Queen Elizabeth has died. I'm really not a royalist but she always seemed like such a decent and determined lady that her loss must be mourned.
I'm also just getting my head around the fact that the new King, Charles, is around a month older than Bill. I had no idea they were so closely contemporary.
Charles always seems to mean well, but it's a heck of a job to take on at 73. Best of luck to him.
