Salman Khan Is All Set To Become Mama For The Second Time
Everyone knows who Queen Elizabeth is and if you don’t know well, it is high time you sneaked out from under that rock!
Anyway, the point is the Queen has been talked about for various reasons and mind, it does not just involve her political status. Her hats, dresses and her Monarchical status in countries such as Canada, Australia, the Baham etc has all been under close public radar. If you thought this was a handful, she also works closely with the British Parliament.
FUN FACTS She is the oldest surviving British Monarch and in fact, the oldest in the whole world! The Queen joined the British Army when she was merely 18 She is both brave and tactful The woman is hail and hearty at 91 years of age, a number most of us cannot even count straight till! This woman has poise, and yet has the spirit of a young child.
When the Queen passes on news will spread like wildfire and no, not just on the social media
At the Buckingham Palace, a footman dressed in black will put up a black-edged notice on the palace’s gates. The royal family’s website will also go black, and news reporters will wear black.
The BBC is usually the United Kingdom’s first news service to be notified of anything. They will remove all comedies and funny content from their schedule, rearrange all their programs in order to accommodate more frequent news updates. The BBC’s radio arm will also only play music that is “appropriate”
Countries of the Commonwealth of Nations have Queen Elizabeth II’s face on their money. Once she passes away, within 10 days, the photo would change to that of Prince Charles.
Prince Charles will make his first address as King of England on the evening of the queen’s death. This will be broadcast across the world. As much as we know it, this speech has probably already been written for years!
The mourning period will last for 12 days and there will be a proclaimed national holiday on the day of the Queen’s funeral, which will happen nine days after her death.
Parliament will immediately be notified and both the houses will sit within hours of the Queen’s death. The Members of Parliament will have to swear oaths of allegiance to the new King of England.
All flags will be at half-mast and condolence books will be circulated in libraries and museums. There will be loose-leaf pages so that any inappropriate messages will be removed. So much for censorship!
Trumpeters will step onto the roof overlooking the Friary Court and give three blasts of their instruments. Then the Garter King of Arms will begin to the proclamation of the king.
On the fourth day after the Queen’s death, her body will be moved to Westminster Hall, where it’ll lie for another four days, followed by a military parade.
