I know we’ve had an open thread on the passing of Queen Elizabeth, but I just came across this and wanted to share it. I simply cannot tell you how much I love it:
“Never have the august duties which fall upon the British monarch been discharged with more devotion than in the brilliant opening to your Majesty’s reign.”—Churchill’s final toast as PM, to Queen Elizabeth II. He was the first of her 15 Prime Ministers. https://t.co/oLWfJukOO1 pic.twitter.com/ayFC1Q82R9

The history and significance of this moment and these two people was and still is, simply incredible.
