A contrast to the pomp of the last days, where the number of diamonds and precious stones adorning the crown on the coffin is listed. And yet, the non-profit organization Refuge Network International also conveys its condolences to the nation, with a photo of the Queen on the front page of its website.

I am not a royalist, but I liked the queen, nuance her neighbor, who was also in line. »
