The Queen is dead, long live the King

Sadly, Queen Elizabeth II passed away on September 8. Did you watch her funeral? It was a very traditional ceremony attended by hundreds of world leaders. Here are some interesting facts about Queen Elizabeth II:

  • She reigned for 70 years. That’s the longest of any British king or queen.

  • She was the head of state of 15 countries including the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and Jamaica.

  • She had more than 30 pet corgies while she was queen.

The new King of the United Kingdom is the Queen’s eldest son: King Charles III (King Charles the third). Will you watch his coronation?
