12. Queen Elizabeth II

Recommended Posts

Going to fuck up my Inverse Pool entry this year. Like the rest of the country, she's out of energy.

 

Thoughts and prayers though....it sounds like days if not hours.

BBC say Prince William, who this morning was dropping his children off for their first day of school in Berkshire, is now heading up to Balmoral. I'm no alarmist, but this does sound grim.

Somethings afoot.

 

I hope genuinely she’s ok but when you get ‘that call’ as I did with my Mum a few months back- it must be something sudden and serious. My mum pulled through but by the heck it’s stressful.

Off the record, and it may mean nothing, but the newsroom has gone very, very quiet. Think it might be a long day.

We've had a couple of deathlist hits of 90+ year old people who, out of the blue, simply died.

Feels strange if it happened to Elizabeth though, I mean, she's THE name. I've expected 2-3 years of barely hanging on, like it happened to Prince Philip.

Seems everything is possible now.

She spoke this week in the UK, they've been in Germany to see progress for the Invictus Games and are coming back to the UK for an awards ceremony. So, yes. He's around.

Halfway through the Queen's speech, then Charles steps in to finish it?

Wow - this feels momentous - something that has never happened in our life times.

 

I'm not ready for it.

HM has a runner in the 4.35 at Epsom, perhaps a win there will perk her up.
