A newsflash interrupts our screen

To announce the death of Elizabeth our queen,

Who was the longest reigning monarch

Our country has ever seen.

The mantle passes seamlessly

To our future king,

The duties he will undertake,

And the challenges it will bring.

For the legacy she left behind

Will be so hard to follow,

As we mourn the passing of our queen

In the coming days of sorrow.

For she has given years of her life

Devoted, committed and loyal,

And so, we offer our heartfelt thanks

For a truly remarkable royal.
