A moment in time.
The passing of a queen, the only monarch many have ever known.
The United Kingdom mourns the passing of Queen Elizabeth II with reverence, sadness and of course, British pageantry.
Marcus Yam is on the ground in London to bring a visual perspective as England says goodbye to the queen.
Many parents speak of the importance of involving their children in this British history.
Many note the importance of the longest reigning Queen.
“She was a great queen, she was important as a woman. As a feminist it’s good for the boys to see that as young men.”
— Annabel Haken
They mourn, memorialize and respect.
Few express indifference about monarchs. But the legacy is history.
Rain pours but does not deter.
Hair pushed aside, faces glimmer wet. Someone yelled, “Long love the queen!”
Camera flash sparkles the scene. Proper applause
A hearse bearing the late Queen Elizabeth II arrives.
