All of us in one way or another will be affected by the death of our longest reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.
Born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary on 21st April 1926 to King George IV and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. She started her official duties at 16, and during world ward II she served in the Auxilliary Territorial Service, and after the Regency Act she became a counsellor on her 18th birthday.
Following the death of her father in 1952, she succeeded to the throne and was crowned on 2nd June 1953. Queen Elizabeth was the longest ever British reigning monarch of 70 years.
She was married to Prince Philip for 73 years, until he died aged 99 in April 2021. They had 4 children (Ann, Charles, Andrew and Edward), 8 grandchildren (Zara and Peter to Princess Ann, William and Harry to King Charles, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie to Prince Andrew, Lady Louise and James to Prince Edward) and 12 great grandchildren (Lilibet, Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte, Prince George, Archie, Sienna, Savannah, Mia, August, Isla, Lena, Lucas).
The Queen touched many of our hearts with her manor, she was the head of the commonwealth, the head of our country and made such a difference in the world. She was the consummate professional, and showed her children and grandchildren, later her great grandchildren much love and affection. She was admired by many, so when we heard the news of her death many were upset and felt as if they had suffered the death of a family member and did not know how they should feel. The is perfectly normal to feel this way as it is a stage of grieving.
Many have cried, many have gone to show their respects to this inspirational lady. If you are finding you are struggling with the death of our Queen, or you have experienced death and do not know how you should be feeling, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us as we can help.
KNown to her family as Lilibet, known to many as the longest reigning monarch.
Good Night, God Bless Queen Elizabeth, reunited with your loved one. May you Rest in Peace.
