The world’s longest living monarch (and queen of Canada) passed away earlier today at the age of 96.
Although I am not a monarchist (and frankly would like to see us give it up), I have long admired the Queen’s prodigious work ethic and commitment to duty. She passed away today. Two days ago, she was still working.
She did a job that was unexpectedly thrust upon her, no doubt upending all the plans she had for a much more conventional life. I hope she rests well.
