Elizabeth II’s funeral will take place next Monday in London.
Since his passing, Britain appears frozen in time and everything seems to be on hold until the funeral takes place.
Media in the United Kingdom continues to report on long queues of people to pay tribute in front of the coffin with the remains of the longest-living monarch in the United Kingdom, reported their stay and road trip Scottish, or if Whether or not her grandson Harry is in the hands of Meghan. The circus that has gathered around the event is filled with hours of television programs and radio programs, and the options are few.
While many of us opt for series or movie platforms, live television has dedicated 24 hours to cover the event, and state media’s programming has removed all traces of comedy or entertainment programs these days.
British “democracy” appears to have curtailed its freedom of expression these days, and there has been widespread arrests of those who have shown their dissatisfaction with the new king, or his brother, Philip, who is his Known for crimes and child abuse. , and throughout British geography. Carrying a piece of paper that says “not my king” means you can be stopped immediately. I hope that we will soon return to full democracy.
As a representative of the Spanish population in the United Kingdom, I do not seek the most important media attention in Spain, but I need to take this opportunity to offer an opinion on something that is not really part of the scope of action. residents’ councils.
As with the attack on Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester, this time I have received messages from important media asking them to voice their opinion about what the Spanish people think or don’t think about the British Queen Huh.
This time at least they weren’t looking to see if he knew anyone who saw the explosion, or was bleeding, or the girls running alone running away from campus… the morbidity was what He needed it on that occasion.
On occasion, what they are looking for is a unified vision that Isabel II represented for the Spanish immigrants, and perhaps I could send them to some of my friends’ social networks and they could verify that it had an impact. Citizens are not equal. In this article, some friends spoke of Elizabeth II as being inspirational and full of strength, while others raised questions and criticisms about some of her less uplifting works.
The Spaniards in the United Kingdom, like the Spaniards in Spain, have very different views from each other about the monarchy and we can also differentiate opinions between the monarchs who are succeeding each other.
The role of the representative should not allow the possibility of being able to speak on issues such as the death of Isabel II and give an opinion for all migrants.
It’s hard to think, yes, that the new king would at some point reach half the popularity of his mother, and some of his actions in the first days of his reign made clear his lack of manners, sympathy, and emotion. time according to their position.
Gestures and complaints towards his workers, with cameras in front of him, while signing documents in various places, we are shown a stern, irritable Charles III, who has the ability to reach anger very quickly.
Even more unpleasant is to learn that without burying his mother he is already announcing mass layoffs at Clarendon House, where 100 people worked for him, and with unusual speed he is already Getting rid of workers who had been by his side for decades.
The United Kingdom will have a second extra day of this 2022 holiday next Monday to be able to observe acts related to Elizabeth II’s funeral. We had another extra day to celebrate 70 years of the Queen’s accession to the throne just a few months ago.
Neither next Tuesday nor Tuesday of next week will we be back to normal and this death in the media will continue for a long time. This change of regime will divert attention from what should really worry British citizens and that is the state of an economy that is going through many problems and due to inflation, loss of markets and partners abroad or labor shortage. Due now to add additional costs, which, along with this funeral, will have on the economy.
It has been estimated that there are eighty billion pounds of sterling in notes and coins bearing the Queen’s face that will have to be gradually withdrawn from circulation, as well as stamps, and all institutions and buildings that will contain “His Majesty” as “Her Majesty”. to be exchanged.
On a day-to-day basis, changes in the occupant of Buckingham Palace would or should not be noticed, and apart from the appearance of Elizabeth II at public events or tabloids, the reign of Charles III would not bring about changes that would directly affect citizens.
Many will remember her presence and her Christmas messages, and many will remember nothing, but it is clear that for many British citizens, 2022 will be the year they lost Queen Elizabeth II, and it will be just one more event. as will be added. In this decade of wars, pandemics, natural disasters, and degradation of the planet, which in just 3 years, is changing life for the worse for the whole world… but it continues and as the queen said, the group, the show should go but…
