With all due respect I think you are completely underestimating her influence and importance.  Especially in the UK.

She was a trash human if you really want to get into it.

The monarchy is garbage.  You're an American, not some subject of the crown.

Twitter is ablaze. A video of Irish soccer supporters chanting about Lizzy being in a box, and the back and forth over a Carnegie Mellon University linguistics professors tweets about wishing QEII an excruciating death are fascinating. I don’t think I will ever understand the deep reverence and the unabashed hatred for the monarchy. It has been a lesson in perspective, the telling of history, how compassion is viewed. It is absolutely fascinating.

Let that be her epitaph - on her gravestone the words:

             Here lies Megan Markle
 An awful person, but her uncle in law was worse

And WTF is up with this ten day mourning period? Get the body in the ground and move on.

Is she an awful person? I have no idea.

To the Brits the Queen is the keeper of British traditions. They look at her life as one of service to the Crown and the State.  I don't neccessarily agree but that's their deal.

Re: her worldwide mourning, she;s like the Pope.  Not everyone is Catholic but most recognize the role the Pope plays in the world.

Many years ago , in the pre internet and cell phone era , I was on the Board of a Multi National Company that had significant interests in The UK

We were having some issues with leases renewals on a number of properties in the Mayfair area of London . The Corporate Secretary of the UK division was going on and on about the Crown this and the Crown that with respect to these negotiations . Some correspondence was passed around and it had stationary with  a Crown as the letterhead , no name or anything else

So finally after much discourse and debate  , as a typical “ Ugly American”, I raised my hand as said “ Who the Hell is this Crown that you people are all in fear of ?”

The Corporate Secretary , with classic English undershot jaw , said “  Sir, The Crown is her Majesty The Queen”

At that point it was explained that the Monarch controlled substantial amount of land and commercial property all throughout the UK. That it was held in Trust and managed for her benefit as well as the country

We also had similar dealings with the The Duke of Westminster also known as ,Earl Grosvenor,  who owned the other land not owned by The Crown.

I learned then that all these sovereigns were essentially land owners from hundreds of years ago , who back in the day fielded their own army’s . As the world evolved they gave up their army’s but kept their property . Earl Spencer , Princess Dianas family ,owned substantial amounts of South Africa .

I saw all the cancellations and thought this at first too. But then again, we're not far from electing presidents who are actuarily unlikely to outlive their terms, so who are we to judge.

I wonder how the Queen's death will affect the final season, 6, series the Crown on Netflix? At least the script writers and actress playing the Queen now knows she is going to die at the end.

I wonder if Oprah will play Oprah in one of the final season episodes.

Uh-huh. Yet another MUFINY story about being involved in everything, everywhere, all the time.

People caring this much about Meghan markle make as much sense to me as people who are still pissed off about the last Jedi.

It actually wouldn't surprise me if the Monachy is finished within 10 years.  Maybe sooner.
nah.  People like William and Kate.  The quicker they take over the better chance it has to go another 50 years or so at least.
