"The King Dies but Britain Lives On and a New Hand Takes the Wheel of State." On this day, 6 February in 1952, George VI passed away; and Princess Elizabeth, aged 25, acceded to the Throne. May he rest in peace!

Most of the recent commenters on here appear to be worthless cunts who've probably never contributed a penn'orth of worth to the land they live in....unlike the poor old hard-working sod who was being buried...at least he tried...

How much jealousy, the world shows to the empire that possibly bought freedom some semblance of order, and common decency to the world. you are all entitled though to your comments. that's what democracy and freedom of speech is about. The rest of you think on.

+rivenoak I've often wondered that.  I remember when Edward VII died, there was much confusion as to what to wear for the death of a King, not a ruling Queen.  The main problem was for the women, but men's attire required attention as well.  With Cousin Elizabeth's passing I wonder how much will "go" and not be used.  I remember when her mother died, there was a greater deal of simplicity in dress and such.  I would think that the veiling and such will be gone, but that the use of the man pulled caisson will be used.

Monarchist or not no-one can say the King didn't have a dignified & well deserved send off.Had his brother not abdicated Britain might well have been an entirely different nation.
