Queen Elizabeth II, longest-serving British monarch, dies at 96

Queen Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor II, longest-serving British monarch, died today at age 96.

Her historic reign has come to an end and her son Charles assumes the throne of England. As of today, the monarch has passed back to a male. Charles is king. I guess the world will have to wait another five hundred years before another queen rules. Charles became king at his mother’s death. The coronation and all is for the benefit of the world and the British people. Charles III is king. He’s is both the oldest and the longest-serving heir apparent in British history. William has become the Prince of Wales. I’m aware the tradition is that William’s life change once Charles is king?

William has inherited the title Duke of Cornwall, which is one of many held by Charles. He does not automatically become Prince of Wales — that title would be the gift of the king. But I feel Charles will give him that title.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    I was sad to learn this. Most Americans were fond of her. She is the only queen most of us know.

  3. A formal statement from Buckingham Palace also confirmed the widely anticipated decision that Charles’ second wife, Camilla, duchess of Cornwall, would be known as the “queen consort.” Ultimately up to Charles upon his ascension, the royal offices at the time of their marriage in 2005 had indicated the former Camilla Parker Bowles would only adopt the style of “princess consort” instead of “queen,” the historic title for the wife of the king. That decision changed earlier this year when, on the date marking the anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, her message included a “sincere wish” that Camilla be known as queen consort when Charles became king. So, in another word, Camilla will become queen.

    • Thanks for the link but I don’t think this man’s life and mine are anywhere near running on the same track. It doesn’t appear to be a work good for the common man. I doubt he would survive five seconds of my life. 🙂 This book is not good for the common man. It’s mean for people who cry a lot about nothing. 🙂

    What is your problem with A. White? What the author said about Elizabeth II is true. She’s the longest reigning monarch in British history dating back to the 3rd century. I am British and I could know. And from what I read your posts have nothing to do with the Queen’s life or death. They are disrespect to the Queen’s memory. They are just a bunch of insane rambling and immature name calling about nothingness. This is not the first post I have read where you and a guy asking for help hijacked the post with madness having nothing to do with the post. This is the kind of things you say via contact. There’s a contact button at the top of this blog.

    A. White, I know what you are trying to do but you can’t do this to all visitors, even if they are blog members. People comes here to learn about your books, they do not wish to learn about the books of others. Most of us do not mind recommendation of the books of others if they are recommended by you.

    It may not seem relevant to you but the post below made me realized I was not joining the blog of an ordinary writer.For someone to know such things like this about my history and is not British told me I was joining the blog of a highly intelligent person. Rarely do you find intelligent and kindness in the same person.

It’s just a bunch of mad rambling and immature name calling about nothingness. Making meant to be damaging implications about the author’s character and integrity when I do not believe you know this writer anymore than I. There is no excuse for being rude. I have seen your rudeness several places where this author is trying to generator interest in his or her books. Why are you out to harm a writer’s reputation with unsound, unfounded allegation found only in your mind? Surely, you know these comments can be damaging as to why you write them.

    It was a sad day but I didn’t expect her to last long after losing Phillip. Has anyone noticed how much Megan looks like Elizabeth when she was young and Harry looks like Prince Phillip?

    Even those who did not like the Queen can’t deny she held Britain in check all these years.

    So King Edward VIII chose love over throne? That’s rare, people fight for thrones and he decided to resign? I wonder if he’d been made to chose between his American woman and that throne! Again, hopefully there are no King Edward’s descendants regretting their ancestors’s decision! May the soul of the Queen rest in peace!

    • Yes, that was very rare what King Edward VIII did. More lives have lost to gain the throne.

      I say Elizabeth did very well considering she was never expected to be queen. But her uncle, King Edward VIII, cleared the way for that to happen when he abdicated his throne to his younger brother, Elizabeth’s father amid a public outcry over his plans to marry twice-divorced socialite Wallis Simpson. When he married her he’d to give up the throne.

      I don’t see the big deal when Winston Churchill was an American who served as Prime Minister. His mother was American, so according to the law if one’s mother is American, the child is automatically an Americans.

        I think the difference between the two could be that the King’s fiancee was a divorcee, twice-divorcee for that matter, whereas Churchill’s mother was getting married for the first time. So marrying an American doesn’t become a big deal like you are saying.

        • I guess in that day and age being a divorcee, not once, but twice was akin to being Lilith, and Churchill’s mother was a first time marrying girl. I guess that was enough to keep him off the throne. Some sure put up a big stink about Harry marrying Meghan.
