Buckingham Palace Crowd Sings ‘God Save The Queen’ After Her Death

LONDON — A crowd in front of Buckingham Palace broke out singing “God Save The Queen” following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in British history.

The queen died Thursday at Balmoral, in Scotland, with her family gathered at her side. For decades her impact on the British people was incalculable, and 500 miles south, in London, people reacted to her death with sobs, silence, and confusion.

“I feel like she’s our grandmother,” Charlotte, 36, of the south coast, told The Daily Wire, shortly before the queen’s death was announced. “She represents a lot more than the Queen.”

Charlotte, who declined to give her last name, said she believed it was significant that the Queen died in Scotland. “There’s quite a lot of differences between us and Scotland, and I just think she has lived her life for our country.”

Asked what the queen meant to him, Ned, a 23-year-old investment analyst, said, “the world.”
