I didn't think she would last a year after Philip's death.
So glad to be out of the UK to avoid the media avalanche of dross and shit that this sets off.
It's weird that there's now a king after having lived my whole life with Elizabeth as the head of state.
It's the not so subtle changes that will be strangest I guess - football fans singing God save the king at the upcoming world cup, no more Queen's speech at Xmas, when new stamps and money come out, and postboxes change from EII to CIII, etc, etc.
Weirder still that it's a 73 year old Charles though.
I wonder how all those Diana worshipping royalists will take to him?
