Queen Elizabeth II dies

    Buckingham Palace said Thursday that Queen Elizabeth II is under medical supervision because doctors are “concerned for Her Majesty’s health,” as members of her family traveled to be with the 96-year-old monarch in Scotland.

    “Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision,” the palace said in a statement that sparked deep concern.

    Has clearly not been well for a while and has had to withdraw from several important engagements, particularly over the last year or so, and Charles has taken over many of her duties recently.

    Another bank holiday, or possibly 2 for the people of the UK so that'd be a nice benefit for them when she does RIP.

    Don't go inventing an acid that eats through anything. What are you going to put it in?

    Yeah things definitely have taken a turn for the worse.

    Usually it's along the lines of "Her Majesty is going to take some rest per doctor's advice."

    I remember being across the sea during the Diamond Jubilee and it was one hell of a spectacle, an incredible celebration.

    I can only imagine what the mourning will be like.

    I’m wondering that. Doesn’t everyone die of something specific though? What kinds of ailments might lead to the demise of someone her age, that can come on suddenly?

    Whatever happens, I wish her comfort and hope she is not in pain.

    This definitely appears to be the beginning of her end. I don’t think BBC 1 have transferred over to full BBC news coverage for any other medical reports. Can’t remember yer man’s name hosting the news but he’s in black already.

    She's 96 years of age, so while it would still be very sad for her family and country if she did go now, it couldn't be said she didn't get a very good innings. I wonder if there's any chance of Prince Charles deciding to 'skip' himself and allow the crown to pass down to Prince William instead? I don't know if that could even be done at all, but it seems like it would be a good chance to get a fresh face in there. Prince Charles's reign would be, even with the best will in the world, relatively short.

    Heart could be failing, or maybe she's had a stroke?

    CNN medical expert pointing out the decision not to move her to hospital suggests things are either basically okay or pretty ominous. But if the former why is Buckingham Palace releasing statements...

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,876 ✭✭✭✭Hello 2D Person Below

    As soon as the Queen dies, Charles will be king but far as I know, parliament could hand the crown to William, upon Charles' request.

    Not watching it but is the Welsh presenter ? If it is him then it’s hue Edwards.

    Why would he do that? Why would either of them want that?
