The Death of Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth the second passed Sept. 2, 2022, leaving an open throne in the British government. A memorial for the Queen was held Sep. 9 and hours later Charles was officially inducted as the king of England. In a monarchy, the king or queen are the head of the state but any legislative decision making resides with the Parliament. 

“Even though Queen Elizabeth’s passing doesn’t directly affect us here in the United States, I was still upset to think about the fact that England lost such an important figurehead,” junior Emma Vietor said. 

Queen Elizabeth will forever be remembered in England for her bright colored outfits and loving manor.
