Liz Truss: Queen Elizabeth II was the rock on which all of Britain rested

At the funeral ceremony for the Queen of Great Britain, Prime Minister Liz Truss called her "the rock on which modern Britain was built."


Truss noted that the second "Elizabethan era" had ended (in the second half of the XNUMXth - early XNUMXth centuries - the period of the beginning of the rise of Britain - the country was ruled by Elizabeth I) and called the death of the queen a great loss for the nation and the world.

Elizabeth II ruled the country for 70 years, during which time 15 heads of government were replaced. Lizz Truss became the country's last prime minister under Queen Elizabeth II. The queen died after meeting Truss. At this meeting, the ceremony of formal approval of the new prime minister took place, which for the first time took place not in London, but in the Scottish castle of Balmoral.

Our country grew and prospered under her rule. Britain is the great country it is today because of her

Truss said at the farewell ceremony for the Queen.

Truss also said that the crown had passed to the new king, Charles III (Prince Charles), and uttered the words: "God save the king."

She has been a personal inspiration to me and to many Britons - her dedication to duty is an example to all of us. She was the rock that held all of Britain up

Truss added.

Almost all living former heads of the British government - Tony Blair, John Major, Theresa May, David Cameron, Gordon Brown - made lofty speeches about the Queen and her role in the life of Britain.

Recall that the Queen of Great Britain died the day before at the 97th year of her life. Charles officially takes the throne. From September 10, he will be known as King Charles III.

      "Our country grew and prospered under her rule" - but that's not true. Your country has grown and prospered under the rule of the main British leech, which has stuck to Russia for 70 years. And she taught all her last ones to suck. And this is considering that the Englishwoman has been crap from time immemorial. And the last 70 years - with special cynicism. And she also stole the Russian royal crown and put it on her head ... I think that the stolen crown is a question we have not completed.

      SO. Charles III (eng. Charles III), full name - Charles Philip Arthur George (eng. Charles Philip Arthur George; born November 14, 1948, Buckingham Palace, London) - King of Great Britain and the Commonwealth kingdoms from the Windsor dynasty, Supreme Commander of the armed forces of Great Britain , Supreme Ruler of the Church of England, Head of the Commonwealth of Nations.

      Historical background of the reign of the Stuart dynasty.
      If the new king decides to definitively be called Charles, he will become the third king of that name.

      King of England, Scotland and Ireland from the Stuart dynasty Charles I reigned from 1625, but during the English Revolution and civil wars he was defeated, was tried by Parliament and executed on January 30, 1649 in London.

      And his son Charles II was King of England, Scotland and Ireland from 1660-1685. He dealt with the perpetrators of the death of his father. And remembered that during his reign, a plague epidemic struck London, and then there was a Great Fire that destroyed most of the English capital.

      Interesting biographical INFORMATION from the DOSSIER about Charles III
      “He never wanted to think about accession to the throne, because it meant the death of his mother,” one of his former assistants said of Charles.

      However, the role of heir has defined Charles' life since the age of 3, when his mother ascended the throne in 1952.

      Charles was born to Princess Elizabeth the year after her marriage to Philip Mountbatten, a former Greek prince of the Glücksburg dynasty. According to his father, Charles is the great-great-great-grandson of the Russian Emperor Nicholas I (through the granddaughter of Nicholas, Olga Konstantinovna - the wife of the King of Greece George I). Accordingly, through his father, he is also a descendant of Peter the Great.

      After the death of his grandfather, George VI, and the accession of his mother, Elizabeth II, the young Charles became heir to the British throne.

      The crown of the Prince of Wales, Elizabeth II laid on the head of her first child on July 1, 1969 at Caernarvon Castle in Wales. From that moment, Charles began to actively participate in public life, in particular, to sit on the meetings of the House of Lords. Prince Charles also became the first member of the royal family in three centuries to attend a Cabinet meeting.

      And now begins a new, inevitably shorter chapter of Charles's life. As a monarch he will have to answer the question that haunted him for several decades: what kind of king will he become?

        You're wrong.
        She had some influence. The worst thing is that with her death, the last very high-ranking witness of the Second World War died, who had influence on the elite, and who knew firsthand all the horrors of the war, and she served as not the last brake on the outbreak of the Third World War. The current rulers (the level of Liz Truss), only know about the war from Hollywood, and to unleash the Third World War for them - just spit.
        They don’t even know about its consequences, but what is there to talk about - they couldn’t even imagine cutting off gas to Europe, here you have the level of modern Western analytics.

        It is a myth. The queen could dissolve and re-elect parliament, command the British Armed Forces, give passports and take citizenship, veto a law or, on the contrary, pass it, as well as pardon criminals. Moreover, she was also the Queen of Canada and Australia.

        I don't care who their deceased princess was for the islanders, but I'm wondering ...

        Here the Air Force, not so long ago, "to measure Stalin" filmed a comedy. And it was widely released, not only in the so-called. "Europe" and Russia tried to let her "business guys" for hire. And very annoying...

        And now I have a question for the Air Force ...

        "Independent" boys and girls, and when will the audience be expected at the box office of your comedy film based on the "departure" of your island princess?.. Well, or at least "Princess Diana"?..

        And if you don't have to wait, then why?

        By the way, it will be interesting how the guys from Chari Hebdo will react to this?..

      Well, "up to the neck in blood" in relation to this particular deceased island princess, too "loud" ...

      But the fact that it has been a favorite, beautiful and expensive toy for the islanders for 70 years, that's for sure ... And "they are in mourning" precisely because of the loss of this toy.

      Now I'll have to get used to the new one, with the "Charles" tag...

      And the National Bolshevik Alina Lebedeva, who, from the crowd of limitrophic extras, massaged his face with a bouquet of carnations, during his visit to one of the limitrophy (already forgot where ...), I think I will be the first to congratulate him with a postcard with a "new status" ...

      For there are not many "monarchs" in the world, to whom the admirers gave bouquets in the face. Under lenses...

        They are all long-lived there. Although the sons of Charles are young and may not want to wait, as he has waited for so many years. This is if you fantasize. laughing This family has rich experience in the past when applicants of 2-3 turns ascend the throne. The story with Richard 3 is worth something.

    No wonder she vouched for her grandmother ...
    Perhaps the era would have continued.



    Charles officially takes the throne. From September 10, he will be known as King Charles III.

    In the English transcription, Charles is Charles, so it will be Charles III.

      Why Karl and not Charles?

      It also became interesting, the answer is simple:
      The name Karl is of Germanic origin. In Latin, it sounded like "Carolus" and was pronounced in France - Charles, in Spain - Carlos, in Portugal - Carlos, in Italy - Carlo, in Romania - Karol, in Hungary - Karoy, in Greece - Karolos, in Poland - Karol, in the Czech Republic, the Netherlands - Karel, in Ireland - Sherlas, and in England - Charles. At the same time, it was always "Carolus" at the interstate level, since it corresponded to the rules of the Latin language.

      Carl at Clara's... Is he 76 now? It seems so far only 73. But basically you are right. It is unlikely that Karl (Charles) will live to his mother's years. And as a representative of the British monarchy with his Camilla Parker-horse - and all the laughter is one. Like Filatov: "Come on, move the crown to one side so that it does not hang on your ears ..." I would give the crown to my eldest son - William and Catherine, Dukes of Cambridge, are much more suitable for a decorative role - both young (40 years old) and healthy, and beautiful, and the family (at least in appearance) is human. Otherwise, Britain didn’t have to remember our “five-year plan for a magnificent funeral” with “carriage races”.

    Personally, I do not join in condolences.
    Ugly Brit died and okay. She ruled for the entire period of time while the Englishwoman spoiled us until the last day.
    Now the “fig decrepit son of an Englishwoman” has reached the post, let him sit on her chair for as long as he has left.
    By God, any Russian grandmother is more pitiful if she dies than this old woman who put all her strength into spoiling us, not physically, so indirectly!

    But instead of the clown Johnson and the old Queen, the ottoman at the throne of old Karl was the village of Liz Truss.
    It was for her that God prepared the will to dispose of Britain.
