Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II tragically died at the very young age of 96 years old. Ruling over the UK since 1952 (I think) and doing absolutely nothing but enrich herself and her family, she gained widespread fame and love through essentially not having a personality and being a blank slate for anyone to project their values onto.
What many people had not been anticipating was getting prepared for a period of national mourning not seen since the Queen's own father passed away. Everything from Sunday league football games to McDonalds is seeing shutdowns and closures due to her passing. The UK has fully lost its mind.
