There seems to be a sense of shock here in the UK, so I thought I'd post something.

She meant a lot to the public as she was one of the last royals of the old guard that meant something real which is a rareity to say the least.

RIP Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

I hadn't even heard she passed away.

I should turn on the TV or read the newspaper from time to time.

It was about 3.15 GMT and they announced it about 2 hours ago, so it's still new news. She died in her sleep after a chest infection.

A car she was riding in hit (well, grazed) my grandmother back in 1979 in Halifax, Nova Scotia...

Grief I might understand. But shock? She was 101 years old! I'd be shocked if she hadn't died today.

But, in the spirt, I'll share my queen mum joke. When I was in England I took a tour called "Eccentric London" which turned out to more or less be a euphamism for "Gay London." The guide told a story about when the queen mum was being transported somewhere by the merchant navy. Apparently the merchant navy has a rep for being gay. Also, apparently the queen mum had a rep for being a drunk.

Anyway, in the story the queen mum couldn't sleep and decided to got to the kitchen and get a drink. Upon arriving, she saw the merchant navy having a party and engaging in their shenanigans. TO which the queen mum said "I don't know about you old queens, but this old queen would like a bottle of gin."
