Britain prepares for the end of Elizabeth II’s rule

The mood in the United Kingdom on Tuesday (10) could be interpreted as a mixture of sadness with the mass fear of the British, in the absence of Elizabeth II at the previous Parliament opening ceremony.

The announcement was made Monday afternoon, and at the last minute, the 96-year-old monarch’s decision not to attend this year’s political ceremony was associated with his increasingly “locomotion problems”. Buckingham Palace, London’s official residence, said in a statement..

His first born and future king, Prince Charles, was appointed to replace Boris Johnson as the symbolic task of presenting the text written by his government with plans for 2022. Accompanied by Charles, who arrived at the Palace of Westminster, where the British Parliament is located. His wife, Camila Parker-Pauls, read the text of a third person, always referring to his mother as his majesty.

But the headline-grabbing topic among the citizens of the head of the Royal House of Winds is, of course, his health – and the length of his reign that ended seven decades in February. According to a study by Yukov, a British company that specializes in online polls, 37% of them want to see Charles’ son Prince William II succeed Elizabeth II, while 34% of respondents expect the Prince of Wales to succeed to the throne.

But what caught the most attention in the poll was a total of 17% of respondents, who believe it is time for the UK to become the “United Nations”, one of the highest percentages indicating such an option in the long run. So this is no longer “God save the Queen” for Windsor, but rather “God save the monarchy”.
