The World Pours out Remembrances, Honors Queen Elizabeth II After Her Death


You’ve probably heard of Queen Elizabeth II’s passing at 96 after 70 years on her throne.

Remembrances of her passing began to flood in from all corners of the globe after the news broke. But, the first came from closer to home. David Beckham, a famous English athlete, says he is grateful that Queen Elizabeth II “would have known how much she was loved” since she was able to witness the celebrations of her Platinum Jubilee (70th Anniversary of her reign) which took place in 2022.

Tonight, the French people honored her life with the dimming lights at the Eiffel Tower.

Justin Trudeau, Canadian PM, made an emotional statement stating that Canada is “in mourning”.

Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a Telegram to express his condolences and support to the new King Charles III

Putin stated that the queen, who died at the age of 95, was an important historical figure in Britain’s 70-year-old reign.

He wrote that “Elizabeth II” enjoyed the respect and love of her subjects for many decades, as well as the authority on the international stage.

Putin did not mention politics or war in his Thursday message.

He told King Charles, “I wish for courage and perseverance in facing this heavy, irreparable damage.” “I ask that you convey your sincere sympathy to the royal family members and all people of Great Britain.”

When railing against “racism or colonialism,” my colleague, wrote earlier, some world leaders showed more respect than many American progressives. Here’s the Nigerian president sharing his nation’s “immense sorrow” as part of the Commonwealth.

He added:

As the world mourns this loss, our thoughts and condolences go out to the Royal Family and all the people of the United Kingdom.

A chapter about Queen Elizabeth ll, a remarkable global personality, and outstanding leader, will not be the end of the story of modern Nigeria. She dedicated her entire life to making the Commonwealth, her country, and the world a better place.

I am pleased to see His Majesty King Charles III ascend to the throne in accordance with tradition and I pray that his reign will bring about continued strong relations between our two countries.

As the world mourns this loss, our thoughts and condolences go out to the Royal Family and all the people of the United Kingdom.

Hillary Clinton made a separate statement to add to the joint statement she and Bill made on the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Michelle Obama and Barak Obama sent their remembrances

The Olympics video mention reminds me of the charming video that the late monarch took part in to celebrate the Jubilee year. I also wrote about it (I also included the James Bond skit with Daniel Craig in case you want it to be viewed again).

Here is Donald and Melania Trump’s condolence message:

It says:

Melania and I are deeply shocked to hear about the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 2. We, along with our American family members, send our deepest condolences and support to the Royal Family as well as the people of the United Kingdom in this time of great sorrow.

The legacy of Queen Elizabeth’s remarkable and historic reign was one of great peace and prosperity in Great Britain. Her leadership and unwavering diplomacy helped secure and advance alliances with the United States of America and other countries around the globe. She will be remembered for her loyalty to her country and unwavering devotion toward her fellow citizens.

Melania and I will cherish our time with Queen Elizabeth II. We will also never forget Her Majesty’s generosity, wisdom, and great sense of humor. She was a beautiful, grand lady. There was no one like her.

As you celebrate her life of meaning and extraordinary service to the country, our thoughts and prayers are with them.

God bless the Queen and grant her peace, may she reign in our hearts forever, and may God keep Prince Philip and her in his stead.

The former president mentioned in the letter that Her Majesty was well-known for her sense of humor.

Let her rest in peace and let God comfort her family.
