That’s it, what we thought was impossible has happened. France, what am I saying, the United Kingdom, what am I saying the whole world is in mourning: Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8, 2022. Our mother to all will have ended up succumbing to the vagaries of old age, to 96 years old. It’s funny, it’s still a sacred page of history that turns. However, the grief did not prevent the twittos from commenting on the event. And as The Queen would surely have wanted us to laugh rather than cry, that’s what we’re going to do (by murmuring the English national anthem, anyway).
