Fresh update on "queen elizabeth ii" discussed on TIME's Top Stories

"Canberra, Australia. Australia is removing the British monarchy from its bank notes. The nation's Central Bank said Thursday its new $5 bill would feature an indigenous design, rather than an image of King Charles the third. But the king is still expected to appear on coins that currently bear the image of the late Queen Elizabeth II. The $5 bill was Australia's only remaining banknote to still feature an image of the monarch, the bank said the decision followed consultation with the center left Labor Party government, which supported the change. Opponents say the move is politically motivated. The British monarch remains Australia's head of state, although these days that role is largely symbolic, like many former British colonies, Australia is debating to what extent it should retain its constitutional ties to Britain. Australia's reserve bank said the new $5 bill would feature a design to replace the portrait of the queen, who died last year. The bank said the move would honor the culture and history of the first Australians. The other side of the $5 banknote will continue to feature the Australian parliament. The bank said in a statement. Treasurer, German Chalmers, said the change was an opportunity to strike a good balance. The monarch will still be on the coins, but the $5 note will say more about our history and our heritage and our country. And I see that as a good thing. He told reporters in Melbourne. Opposition leader Peter dutton, likened the move to changing the date of the national day, Australia day. I know the silent majority don't agree with a lot of the woke nonsense that goes on, but we've got to hear more from those people online. He told two GB radio. Dutton said prime minister Anthony albanese was central to the decision for the king not to appear on the note, urging him to own up to it. After taking office last year, albanese started laying the groundwork for an Australian republic by creating a new position of assistant minister for the republic, but holding a referendum to sever a constitutional ties with Britain has not been a first order priority for his government. The bank plans to consult with indigenous groups and designing the $5 note. I process and expects will take several years before the new note goes public. The current $5 note will be issued until the new design is introduced, and will remain legal tender, even after the new bill goes into circulation. The face of King Charles the third is expected to be seen on Australian coins later this year. One, Australian dollar is worth about 71 cents in U.S. currency. British currency began transitioning to the new monarch with the release of the 50 pence coin in December. It has Charles on the front of the coin, while the back commemorates his mother. Australia's smallest denomination accounts for 10% of the more than 2 billion Australian banknotes circulating. Albanese center left Labor Party is seeking to make Australia a republic, with an Australian citizen as head of state instead of the British monarch. After a labor one elections in May last year, albanesi appointed met thistlethwaite, an assistant minister for the republic. This old way said in June there would be no change in the queen's lifetime. Australians voted in a 1999 referendum proposed by a labor government to maintain the British monarch as Australia's head of state. When the queen died, the government had already committed to holding a referendum this year to acknowledge indigenous people in the constitution. The government has dismissed adding a republic question to that referendum as an unwanted distraction from its indigenous priority. At one time, Queen Elizabeth II appeared on at least 33 different currencies, more than any other monarch, an achievement noted by Guinness World Records..

Fresh update on "queen elizabeth ii" discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist

"8 35 in Zürich, 7 35 here in London and will continue now with today's newspapers. Joining me in the studio once again is Terry's a political journalist and author good morning tutorial. Now we've been hearing a lot about the EU UK Ukraine conference that happens tomorrow. There are a couple of reports in European papers. Let's figaro is talking about it. What do they say? Well, yes, as you'd expect, I think Ursula von der leyen has just arrived in Kyiv and some of the pictures of her arriving at the railway station are already out there. Talking about really the complications of trying to organize a summit like this. The EU, all the commissioners traveling to Kyiv, but not quite all of the commissioners. So le figaro is saying that they think they haven't given the list of exactly who's going on the trip because of security reasons, but they think they're probably about 15 of the EU commissioners who are traveling along on this trip. And the logistics of it, as well as the politics of it, which you've already heard all about are actually as you'd expect incredibly incredibly complicated. So as well as wanting to talk about Ukraine's future at about the Europe support for Ukraine, the whole vexed question of membership. It's really complicated to try and organize this. So in the suit Deutsche title. They are talking about France timmermans, who are either luckily or unluckily however you see it. He's the environment commissioner. And he's saying they're saying that he is going to be the Designated Survivor of the EU commission. So they're leaving him behind in Brussels just in case anything untoward were to happen to the rest of the European Commission. So they're adopting this kind of American idea that he's the person who's the continuity in case there were any security incident affecting affecting the rest of the team. Well, and there's a really extraordinary article in Politico about the dress code. Yes, this one apparently, again, in a journalist's commission as people all traveling into Kyiv, of course, again, there's a lot of sensible security precautions that you have to take. But the dress code apparently says it is usual business attire. So come as you are in Brussels, please don't wear green car key or bright colors. So they're explicitly told not to wear khaki, presumably partly so they don't look as though they are in the military, but also apparently so as not to upstage president zelensky, who, you know, as we all know, where's his difficult sort of green T-shirt and combat. So they are told, yeah, please don't dress as though you are president zelensky. Also, please don't over pack. So we're requested to travel light backpack or similar avoiding a suitcase, if possible. You'll get a cold box with food on the train, please expect only basic supplies where something warm and your train is going to be a bit crowded. So for the European commissioners, this is not quite the luxury that they might be used to. And I wonder if the whole dress code thing comes from zelensky himself, it would appear a tiny bit diverge if that's the case. I don't know. I don't know whether it's just that the commissioners want to make this distinction clear or whether they just feel that it's also interesting, don't wear bright colors. It makes you a target. Does it make you a target? Does it just make you stand out too much? I don't know, but it's obviously a sign of the level of thinking and planning that has gone into this trip is that you have to tell people precisely what they ought to be wearing. Let's whisk down to Australia now because they are not putting King Charles on their new bank notes. Yes, this is an interesting story here. So there's been a discussion in Australia about what to do because obviously the current Australian $5 note has the late queen Elizabeth II on it, and they were thinking what to do as they choose to obviously replace this. But Australia has decided not to have a King Charles the third on that bank note instead. And they are going to have a design which hasn't been finalized yet, which apparently will honor the culture and the history of the first Australians. Now, some people in Australia are opposition leaders saying prince they think is another attack on our systems on our society and our institutions, the Australian monarchists, as you would expect, saying that this is Australian democracy and even saying it's virtually neo communism in action, but however people representing the greens and the first nations people are saying this is a massive win for grassroots First Nations people who've been fighting to decolonize the country. Well, of course, penny Wong, who's the foreign minister, has been accused of being the most woke minister of all time, and offers this woke government like workers some kind of insult. It's kind of odd. I mean, she's here now in London, saying that Britain needs to confront its colonial past. As indeed, it seems Australia is now doing. Yes, this is an interesting approach, so she, penny Wong, when she was in London, she's been giving a speech or talk to King's College London saying how much the relationship between Britain and Australia had changed and she's saying that today is a modern multicultural country, Australia sees itself as being in the indo Pacific and part of the Endo Pacific and talking about also an interestingly her own family's relationship with colonialism. She moved to Australia when she was 8, her father's Chinese Malaysian and she said some of her family had worked as domestic servants for British colonists. But said also it's just interesting and although some stories like this feel uncomfortable for some people, understanding the past enables us to better share the present and the future. And what does she want the UK to do then? Well, she's written and the UK to the two engaged with this debate, really. And talk more about their history. She's praising the UK for being more interested in its relationship with the indo Pacific region, but also I suppose once Britain to publicly address some of those issues as well and try and find more common ground that she obviously thinks it would be better for Britain to try and engage with that and take part in those conversations. No, let's talk about these buildings. This is quite an extraordinary story. So will you lay it out for us? It's the tape flats. So yes, anybody who has been to the Tate modern on the south bank on the River Thames. You'll know it's had an extension. It's an old power station that was converted and has now built an extension on the back with an amazing viewing platform where if he's down on it, you can see all the way across London pretty much. You can see across the river, you can see you can also see into some people's flats. So there are some modern blocks of flats, just next door to the building, which are kind of got a sort of try and get a corner on them where they've got big glass windows. You can see right in. So today all yesterday rather for the owners of four luxury flats brought case court case that was rejected by lower courts when all the way to the Supreme Court in London, the judge has now agreed with them with the owners of the flats that it was like being on display in a zoo and said that they had the right to privacy. And there was visual intrusion and a clear case of nuisance. So now the take gallery has to decide what to do about it. I think from last time I went there, there were already signs saying please don't stare into people's windows. It's a bit rude. You know, classic British way to approach this. But there's no big debate about what to do about this, because although the extension is quite new, so are the flats. And so most of the people who live there must presumably have known that, you know, you've got the benefits of being right on the river and right next to the Tate gallery, but people might also look into your big glass windows. I mean, there's throws up so many things. If you buy a flat in the center of the city with

"Secured access to four additional military bases in the Philippines after setting up in South Korea, Japan and north Australia. The cooperation allows Washington key positioning to monitor Chinese operations in the South China Sea and around Taiwan. The Bank of England is expected to raise interest rates again from 3.5% to four. This is the tenth time in succession the rates have increased and the rates already at its highest level for 14 years analysts believe the rate will peak at 4.5% this summer. And Australia is set to replace images of Queen Elizabeth II on its $5 banknote, with a new design to reflect and honor its indigenous culture. The late monarch's death last year has reignited debate in the country over whether it will remain as a constitutional monarchy. This is the globalist. Stay tuned. Now more than 400 balls take place in Vienna every winter attracting dance loving visitors from all walks of life, but as with most things there's been a hiatus of COVID. But now that the courtly customs dating back to the 18th century, the elaborate dress codes, the debutantes, and of course the dancing is back. I'm joined by Alexi carrillo, who's Monaco's Vienna correspondent Monica's Vienna and wolfson correspondent, I think, from now on. Can you describe a Viennese ball to us? Well, it's dreadful. It's actually quite beautiful. I've had the pleasure of attending one myself. The highlight of the season, the Vienna operable. But of course, you know, it's a lot of headache. It's a lot of stress because a great deal of preparation goes into it. And you've got to spend money, obviously. Dancing lessons, if you don't know how to do walls. And there's not only walls, you know, there's all kinds of dancing, the dancers, mazurka, quadrail, and all those other ones that I don't know the names of. You've got to obviously get the right clothes because the dress code is very strict, especially for men. You have to be entails in a telco for most of these. For women, it's a bit more relaxed. But generally, once you get into the spirit of things, it can be quite joyful, yes. So when you talk about the strict dress code, I mean, I automatically sort of envisage women in 18th century costumes with huge ball golf. But are they wearing mini skirts and things? I don't think that's allowed. I mean, I'm not an expert, but I don't think it is. No, but generally for women, it's flaw length dresses. Which could be made of any fabric. That's what I know. And they could be any color as well, because for men, it's strictly black. Right. With a white shirt. Which are the most famous balls. You mentioned the operable, but there are a few others that are big highlights of the season. Well, in Austria, we've got this curious situation that every profession that's at every job has an association to its name. They're a bit like trade unions, but obviously without the power of trade dealings. So coffeehouse owners, police, academicians, bakers, pastry chefs, hunters, all the way down to or up to chimney sweeps. All have an association to their name. And each of those associations has a ball to its name. So obviously for those groups, their own ball is the highlight of the season. But as I said, the Vienna opera ball is the biggest one of all and this year, things going to take place in a couple of weeks time of the 16th February. But the other big one and the other, and this one is very controversial, is the academicians ball, which usually attracts far right people and of course a lot of protest as well outside the hofburg palace where it takes place. But obviously, as I said, the Vienna opera ball is a big one. This one is a big one, and there's also the Vienna philharmonic ball the FiLMiC house ball that takes place obviously at the end of the month, which is also the very big one. Are you going? Not this year, no. Because as I said, it does take a lot of preparation. And I'm afraid I haven't had the time for this this year. I think it sounds absolutely marvelous. Just before you go Lexi, isn't this whole system of debutantes? Does that still exist are women sort of brought out for the first time at balls? It does. It does, yes. And that's the one time that I attended. That was the thing that was why I went to get introduced into that culture as well to look at that, not because and that thing does exist still. Some people obviously think it's very outdated. But I think it's really sort of a heritage thing really. It's not as important as it used to be, let's say. Alexei, thank you very much indeed.

"Watch the queen's funeral? Yes, I watched parts of it. A lot of it. And I found it very moving. I was moved by how Christian it was. It was profoundly Christian. And the fact that, you know, scores of millions, if not hundreds of millions of people watched something that was so Christian, it really was, it was just an extraordinary thing. The queen was serious about her Christian faith. And as I say over and over and over again, just because someone says they're a Christian, it's virtually meaningless to say you're a Christian. The question is, are you living like a Christian? You know, and from what I know, she was quite a serious Christian and the funeral was just magnificent. It was transcendent. And really, those kinds of events, the majesty of it, of our funeral procession. All those things, I think, point us toward God.

"I'm too close, but that's how it feels. Obviously don't need to tell you of all people that this is going to be an absolutely immense global televisual event. That being the case, do you think the image that the people who tune into this are getting of Britain as opposed to the monarchy is accurate? How much of modern Britain do you think is reflected in what the monarchy projects overseas? You know, I think one of the things that you really get here is the cross cultural nature of what the country has become. King Charles spoke about that in his speech that during the lifetime of the queen, it's become a country of multiple cultures, multiple faiths. So the face of the UK has changed in that time. But all the faces of the UK seem to be speaking with one voice about the queen. Look, it is a self selective process in a way that if you go out on the street and you get in line to go pay your respects to the queen's coffin. Then you would naturally be somebody who would have stronger feelings towards the monarchy. But I think what we're seeing on the streets is a reflection of what Britain has become, which is a vastly different place than the post World War II Britain of the early 1950s when the queen came to the throne. And I was in Scotland as well. And Northern Ireland and I have to say, you know, you have unionists and nationalists in both countries. I didn't get that feeling talking to people that here was a unionist. And here was a nationalist. People who were nationalists and both Scotland and Ireland were Northern Ireland, were telling me that they were very supportive of what the queen had done and were willing to give King Charles a shot to see how well he could do. Big shoes to fill in, they said, but they wanted to see how he would do. All that said, do you think there is any argument that the monarchy does create an idea of the United Kingdom? This idea of the country is a somewhat staid, stuffy, hidebound, old fashioned sort of place. Sure it does, that's where the monarchy comes from it comes from a system of an entitled elite that maintained their place of authority in the country and along comes a parliament. Hundreds of years ago and things begin to change. And I think the evolution that we see today, the aristocracy is not as big and as entitled and as powerful as it was. And you can not escape the Pinnacle of the aristocracy is the monarchy. But again, it's an evolution, and it changes. And I think the royals are acutely aware of that as everyone else. There have been dissenting voices over the last little while, and many of them have focused on the monarch's place as the head of what was an empire which spanned pretty much the entirety of the world at one point and which, like all empires do, did not do, I think it's fair to say, unalloyed good in all of the territories, it conquered. Does maintaining the monarchy as these people have argued, do you think it prevents a proper reckoning with empire, or is there perhaps some sort of case to be made that maintaining the monarchy kind of encourages that conversation to continue? These are great questions. And it's very hard to answer them simply, I think. Beyond a doubt, the monarchy grew stronger and richer through the empire. And that was at the detriment to people within that empire. As the empire fell apart, the queen pulled together some remnants of that empire in the Commonwealth Commonwealth of 53 nations, which really sort of identifies itself today because the sovereign of the UK is only the sovereign of 14 other countries. Is one that sort of sees itself more defined by common allies in business in sporting events. In these regards, I think rather than the sort of overlordship. Which gets to your point of how do you ever have a reckoning with that past? And I think it's hugely important and difficult if there's anyone that can reckon with the past, that surely should be the monarchy. But when you try to sort of break down the ideas of empire, of course, there were empires that go way back before the British Empire, Roman Greek, or whatever. And how far back do you go in history? I suppose you could look at what happened to the original Britons when the Romans arrived here and never recovered because the angles and saxons came in the south and then the Vikings from the north and all of that. But the deep, I think, hurt that the empire has caused is more visible because as I was saying it's on the streets of our country today and there are people and we've seen this through the statues protests here who feel that sense of empire wronging them as being very, very real and rightly they should feel that way. Can this monarchy evolve towards that? Look, if the popular voice says you need to do this, then that's the direction the monarchy will be pushed in. The monarchy, if nothing knows how to survive and it is shaped by what people want. Just finally then, do you think there's any way at all that King Charles the third can hope to have the same diplomatic heft, his mother required, or was that presence eventually a function of her longevity, that she'd just become such a permanent fixture that she was seen as this. I guess solid and reliable and considerable diplomatic force. Well, she came to the throne at a time when the United Kingdom was still a very large global force to be reckoned with the world was reconstructing itself out of the ashes of World War II and therefore there was a dynamic that existed there where Britain carried more weight in that dynamic and shaping the world and the queen could have a bigger role in that than I think Charles can have in hope of shaping a significantly similar diplomatic heft that the queen had because the role of the United Kingdom is more diminished. We don't have a voice as strong as we did in the European Union, for example, there are members of the Commonwealth that feel that's not a good idea. The British Empire, what remains of it is not as malleable as it was when Queen Elizabeth came to the throne. Nick Robertson, thank you for joining us. That was Nick Robertson international diplomatic editor for CNN. As the title of this week's episode of the foreign desk foreshadows, Queen Elizabeth II's funeral will indeed be a funeral like no other. But there have been funerals a bit like it, which means that there are people who have some idea what it is like to attend such an occasion. Earlier we spoke to Alexander stubb, who served as prime minister of Finland from 2014 to 2015, mister stube attended the ceremonial funeral of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher back in September 2000 and 13. Yeah, I mean, I remember being in the cathedral and obviously the moon being very somber. And I also actually remember George Osborne being teary eyed. And, you know, a lot of the people that memories of Thatcher speaking, I think it was a very solemn and a grand event. And I certainly will never forget it. I think I was trade minister at the time. And they told me where to go and what to do. There's a lot of waiting around. There's a lot of security. I do hope so remember that all the streets were shot down. And you know, I think London is quite how would I say busy city. And then once the procedure was over, for some reason, the embassy car was able to be taken through the streets of London in an opposite direction with absolutely no people around. And that felt kind of eerie

"For that update, Doug cruise really appreciate it. It is three 49 on Wall Street. The following is an editorial from Bloomberg opinion. This editorial was written by the Bloomberg editorial board. The recent death of Queen Elizabeth II marked the end of one of the most remarkable public careers in modern history. Amid geopolitical upheaval, social turmoil, and technological revolution, the queen's decency and grace brought stability to Britain and endeared her to generations all over the world, considering the transformation of British society that took place over her 7 decade rain, perhaps her most striking achievement has been preserving the institution of the monarchy itself, while support for the monarchy has slipped in recent decades, a solid majority of Britons wanted to continue. That's a testament to the queen's leadership, as she demonstrated one last time during the COVID pandemic, Elizabeth served as an enduring symbol of reassurance, diligence, and integrity. For that she deserves the world's admiration, the editorial was written by the Bloomberg gadiel board for more Bloomberg opinion, please go to Bloomberg dot com slash opinion or op IN go on the Bloomberg terminal.

U.S. funded study claims physics is racist because students are rewarded for being correct. In other words, you're being. Smart is a bad thing. Getting the correct answer is a bad thing. Developing critical thinking skills is a bet. I don't understand how this is racist. It's racist only because it's taught in America. What about physics in Africa? You don't think other people use physics, physics around the world? This is a story from daily wire. A 500,000 grant from the national science foundation funded a 22 page study that used critical race theory to argue that physics was racist in part because it rewards students for getting the right answer and uses white boards. Guys, we are dealing with good versus evil, not left versus right, not Democrat versus Republican, and we have to start treating these issues as such. These people are evil. These communists, these freaking marxists that are embedded within the Democrat party that are embedded within academia that are embedded within the mainstream media. These people are evil. Get used to saying it, get used to thinking it, get used to fighting it. Or we will never get this country back. Our black people not allow to understand physics, freaking insane. Climates are John Kerry's carbon footprint is 300 times that of the average American. And this was, I've got to go around the world and you know, do my duty to fight this stuff. Freaking moron. Liar moron, not a hypocrite, just a despicable person because they know they know so long. These people, they get off on, they get off on knowing people are gonna die. I guess they think they're accomplishing some type of greater good. They're just evil. They're evil. You gotta get used to saying it. You gotta get used to believing it. Stop, you know, when the news comes on and you see all the headline Trump Trump or this subject, this subject is whatever it may be. Understand who the Democrat party understand who the left has become. They're evil. They are evil. Now, speaking of evil, let me go to this professor really quick. Carnegie Mellon university professor Uzi Lana, who you saw Tucker Carlson mentioned. And his monologue last night reacted to the news of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, suffering from poor health shortly before her death on Thursday by calling her a quote a wretched woman and a genocidal colonizer who is the quote, the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire. Adding that may her pain be excruciating close quote. She said I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying, may her pain be excruciating. This is what professor uzu Ana of Carnegie Mellon said, don't send your kids there. Don't send your kids there. She deleted the tweet after some backlash, but she came back again. This was a second tweet. She said that wretched woman and her bloodthirsty throne have f'd generations using the full word of my ancestors on both sides of the family and she's supervised the government that sponsored the genocide, my parents and siblings suffered. No word on abortion. No mention of abortion. No mention of the genocide that she supports within the United States none zero zilch nada. She says me she die in agony. May she die in a listen, this is evil. This is a despicable human being. I don't care about her gender. I don't care about the color of your skin. When you get off saying that, when you're able to be this nasty and be lauded for it, by many on the left. You're despicable human being. This is a lady that's godless. This is a lady that thinks her degrees are godlike, this is a lady that doesn't understand that she will be judged by God. This is a black Marxist who follows a white European economic model. This lady is a fraud, and she doesn't even know it. And she's a disgrace. This is disgusting. I understand there's a history. People don't know that blacks enslave some Europeans too. Kind of weird. It's almost like it's almost like this college professor doesn't know that slavery was universal. It's like this college professor doesn't know that Africans enslaved Africans. Africans enslaved Europeans. Vice versa. Indians enslaved Indians. It was a nasty world. Thank God for Western countries that helped get us past that nasty world. And this lady is privileged to live in it and speak like an ignoramus that she is..

"Having said all of that, let's get to the video at hand. Here's Tucker Carlson. And again, because of copyright infringement, we're going to have to break it up. And then I'm going to talk to you about I wasn't going to talk about Queen Elizabeth. Listen, I have no love affair for the monarchy. I'm just being completely real with you, but I've always admired her from afar, not knowing much about her just because everything that she seemed to be involved in, at least that I saw publicly, right? Epitomized grace epitomized class and tradition. And tradition. And I'm going to tell you why I think that's very important. But let's go to the video of Tucker Carlson. Go ahead, gage. Good evening and welcome to Tucker Carlson tonight. Queen Elizabeth II died today in Scotland as you likely know at the age of 96. She was the longest serving monarch in British history. She was born in one world and died in another. It's not easy to maintain your dignity while living in the public eye. Most of us could not pull it off for an afternoon. Queen Elizabeth did it for more than 70 years. I want to ask you all, she wrote, shortly before her coronation in 1953, whatever your religion may be to pray for me on that day to pray that God may give me wisdom and strength to carry out the solemn promises I shall be making and that I may faithfully serve him and you all the days of my life. Okay, let's hold it. Let's hold it there. Now, typically guys, listen, I'm an American, you're an American likely if you're listening to this podcast and you're sitting there, listen, this was a monarchy. I mean, this lady was born into royalty and money. And all of this stuff, yes, that is true. And obviously, we fought the Brits for our independence, right? So, you know, I understand that. But that doesn't take away from the fact, again, that this lady was the epitome of grace grace and class and also represented it represented traditionalism. Just seeing that statement that she made a pun, upon becoming a queen, proves to me that at least initially and actually I believe throughout her reign that she was a woman of humility. She was a woman that respected God. She was a woman that revered God, and that's extremely important. For the most part, she did just that. And that was not a small achievement given the period she lived in. The week that Elizabeth was coronated, Edmund Hillary, a British subject from New Zealand to beekeeper, became the first man in history to summit Mount Everest. The achievement seemed symbolic at the time, Britain on top of the world. But in fact, Britain was already over, whether the British knew it or not. To this day, Britain claims to have won both of the 20th century's world wars. But together, they destroyed that nation forever. After victory came humiliation. The empire evaporated and along with it Britain's self confidence and ultimately its self respect. It's hard to believe now, but Britain wasn't always a regional banking center slash refugee camp. It was a real place with a history and a language and a culture and a genuinely remarkable people..

Our condolences to our Canadian listeners on the loss of their monarch and to our Commonwealth, listeners around the world, especially those in the United Kingdom. Winston Churchill marking the death of king George VI and the accession of Queen Elizabeth II just now. Let's go to Liz truss at ten downing yesterday. The prime minister of Great Britain, who had two days earlier, kissed hands with the queens and become her 15th prime minister cut number one. They're all devastated by the news that we have just heard from balmoral. The death of her majesty, the queen, is a huge shock to the nation, and to the world. Queen Elizabeth II was The Rock on which modern Britain was built. Our country has grown and flourished under her reign. Britain is the great country it is today because of her. She ascended the throne just after the Second World War. She championed the development of the Commonwealth from a small group of 7 countries to a family of 56 nations, spanning every continent of the world. We are now a modern thriving dynamic nation. Through thickened thing, Queen Elizabeth II provided us with the stability and the strength that we needed. She was the very spirit of Great Britain, and that spirit will endure. She has been our longest ever reigning monarch. It's an extraordinary achievement to have presided with such dignity and grace for 70 years. Her life of service stretch beyond most of our living memories. In return, she was loved and admired by the people in the United Kingdom, and all around the world. She has been a personal inspiration to me. And to many Britons, her devotion to duty is an example to us all. Earlier this week, at 96, she remained determined to carry out her duties. As she appointed me as her 15th prime minister. Throughout her life, she's visited more than a hundred countries, and she has touched the lives of millions around the world. In the difficult days ahead, we will come together with our friends across the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and the world. To celebrate her extraordinary lifetime of service. It is a day of great loss. But Queen Elizabeth II leaves a great legacy. Today, The Crown passes as it has done for more than a thousand years to our new monarch, our new head of state, his majesty, King Charles the third. With the king's family, we mourn the loss of his mother. And as we born, we must come together as a people to support him. To help him bear the awesome responsibility that he now carries for us all. We offer him our loyalty and devotion. Just as his mother devoted so much to so many for so long. And with the passing of the second elizabethan age, we usher in a new era in the magnificent history of our great country. Exactly as her majesty would have wished. By saying the words, God save the king. That is Liz trusts the prime minister of Great Britain. The Americans are not going to get this. I mean, we all who listen to show today are going to love Queen Elizabeth for everything that she personified, particularly duty, and surface. Duty and service are bound up with Queen Elizabeth II..

"Okay, meanwhile, as I say, we here in the United States would like to flatter ourselves. We don't have monarchs. We don't do this Elizabeth II thing. No, we do. We just elect them. And then we treat them like monarchs. I've been railing for years against, for example, the idiotic spectacle of the State of the Union address. I hate the State of the Union address. It's monarchic. It's more lavish than anything the royal family does. I mean, we spend more money on the president's vacations than the Brits spend on the royal family. In fact, you know, our presidents aren't supposed to be like regular people. We elect dullards to the highest offices in the land, and then we treat them like monarchs, which is why I suppose Korean Jean Pierre spent yesterday defending the fact that Joe Biden has been taking like 8 vacations every month. 17% of Americans have, according to this Gallup poll, canceled vacations or traveled less. President spenders beach house 6 times this year. He's been in north and South Carolina on vacation. Has the president himself considered personally reducing his spending because of inflation or have the administration reduce spending. So I'll say this, the times that the president has gone to Delaware, not including and we were very clear that when he went to South Carolina in August and Rehoboth, he was going to go spend time with his family, which every president does. That is not unusual. That is not uncommon to do in the president has a right to spend time with his family. Just like every other American across the country. Wow, is every other American taking this many vacations? From their job, where are the most powerful person on the planet? Didn't know that. But again, the way that Americans see their politicians is essentially like royalty. We have a couple of royalty sort of oriented things that we in America like to do. We have our celebrity class, those are royalty. And then we have our politicians who we treat like royalty, both of these things are unbelievably stupid. The biggest problem is with treating our politicians like royalty because when you do that, they actually start to act like kings. And old school gangs. The thing about the monarchy that used to be that is the monarchy used to have actual power. Now the monarchy has no power in Britain. But when you unite, celebrity worship with political power, what you end up with is the possibility of people using that extraordinary power in order to crack down on their political opponents. Today is perfect example of this. And it really is quite frightening, actually, is Kathy hochul. So Kathy hochul is the governor of New York. And she tweeted out a couple of days ago, quote, everyone needs to do their part to combat gun violence. American Express Mastercard and Visa should categorize firearm purchases and flag a suspicious activity, just like they do for millions of other transactions. Together, we can help stop gun trafficking and keep New Yorkers safe. So again, the idea here is that now your credit card companies are supposed to keep tabs on you if you exercise your Second Amendment rights. And this is part and parcel of the broader left wing attempt. You basically cudgel corporate America into doing their bidding, using ESG to tell energy companies that they need to stop drilling for oil and natural gas, for example. Attempting to get credit card companies to remove NRA giveaways and breaks that you get on your credit card because the NRA is super, super bad. The un banking of large swaths of the American public that the left would really, really like to see. That sort of stuff is scary. Again, when you unite worship of government with powerful government figures, you end up with some really negative stuff. And if you're talking about things that are capable of splitting a part of polity, that would be it. Once politicians start using the auspices of private business in order to shut down their political opposition, that's truly frightening stuff. And by the way, this applies on the left as well as the right. I mentioned before that there's this idiot professor from Carnegie Mellon university who was putting out this tweet about how she hoped for that Queen Elizabeth II suffered on her deathbed. Well, that tweet was taken down by Twitter. That's not something Twitter should be doing. When you have private corporations that are basically acting as sensors, that is not a good thing. Quote unquote free speech corporations that are doing the bidding is not good. When Mark Zuckerberg goes on Joe Rogan and admits that the FBI basically asked him to quash the Hunter Biden story. That sort of stuff is not worthy of a great republic. But more and more, we don't have a great republic so much. In order to sort of restore that, we're going to have to restore some of the common bonds and common vision that made America unique. So actually, I do have one piece of good news today. So remember, a couple of weeks ago, I went over to podcast movement in Dallas, this is sort of personal piece of good news, but I think it has some larger, I think it has some larger consequences for the American public debate. So you'll remember that it was a national news story because I went over to this conference called podcast movement. We had bought a booth over there, and I just walked the floor. They happened to be in town for actually another event, and my people were like, do you want to come in? Do you want to say hello? I went and I walked the floor a little bit. And podcast movement then put out this abject apology for my presence. I said that my very presence, my very existence, was threatening to some people. And they couldn't and they regretted the harm that had caused. Well, yesterday, finally, they decided that they were going to back off of that. So they put out a statement, suggesting that they were apologizing for that,

"Higher Irish nation with a simple head bow at the garden of remembrance in May 2011, the heroes who died fighting her country's army, that moment of symbolism was enhanced by some superbly well chosen words later at Dublin castle. And then, of course, she gave a speech in the middle of COVID that was, I think, really comforting to a huge number of people across the world, not just in Great Britain in the middle of time of global turmoil. Here was the queen of England talking about COVID and its impact on her country. I'm speaking to you at what I know is an increasingly challenging time. A time of disruption in the life of our country. A disruption that has brought grief to some financial difficulties to many, and enormous changes to the daily lives of us all. I hope in the years to come, everyone will be able to take pride in how they responded to this challenge. And those who come after us will say the Britons of this generation were as strong as any. That the attributes of self discipline of quite good humored resolve, and a fellow feeling, still characterize this country. The pride in who we are is not a part of our past, it defines our present and our future. We should take comfort. Okay, so is those sorts of values that she represented, right? The sort of quiet solid belief in eternal values over the course of time. British stiff upper lip, the idea that you can take on challenge. All those things are what she symbolized. Now, the backlash to her death, materialized immediately. I mean, not people who are anti her dying. People were very pro for dying as it turns out, which is just insane. I'm sorry, that is an extraordinary response to the death of a woman who literally had a symbolic role and a symbolic role involved things like telling people to buck up under pressure to understand their heritage to believe in the values of democracy. So it came in a couple of forms. One was the, okay, well, she's a queen who cares. Whatever. You know, we're American. We fought The Crown just so we wouldn't have to care about stuff like this. Okay, I get it. The reality is that he monarchy of Britain right now is not anything remotely resembling the monarchy of Britain in the time of king George the third. He had no political power. And this is something people ought to remind themselves is that when they're yelling at Queen Elizabeth II, they're yelling at a person whose role is entirely symbolic. She had no political power in Britain. The United States fought king George the third in parliament in order to be free of the political power of king George the third. But the truth is that apparently people have a need for royalty in the United States, we've supplanted the idea of a symbolic leader who is like Queen Elizabeth II. We've supplanted that with a celebrity culture that is filled with babbling idiots who repeat whatever lines are put in front of them and apparently take their cultural cues and political cues from other television writers. And those are our royalty over here, our royalty is like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lawrence. Over in Britain, the royalty was Queen Elizabeth II. That's sort of a difference in kind. The human desire to look to symbolic leadership, it's still that it doesn't disappear just because you get rid of the monarchy. The danger in the United States is when you actually start to identify the symbolic leadership with actual political power. That's how you end up with dictators. That's scary stuff. But again, her role was more like that of the American flag almost than it was like that of a political leader like a Joe Biden or Donald Trump or something like that. So that was form number one at the backlash to her talk, which is us. She's the queen who cares. What's the other form that the backlash to her toke was? The British Empire was bad. And she was bad because the British Empire was bad. Understand that the folks who are saying this are people who are generally historically ignorant, or people who fail the easy test of understanding context, people who seem to believe that the evils of the west are unique, but that it's goods are universal, which is precisely the opposite of the truth. The opposite of the truth is that the evils that the British Empire visited upon the world, which were not insignificant. They're very real to literally millions of human beings or accompanied by goods that were extraordinarily unique to billions of people around the world. And that those evils that the British Empire visited upon people were certainly not unique to the British Empire. They are unique human those are universal human evils that exist in the human heart. Pretending that the Brits were the only people who were attempting to expand empire at the time of the British Empire's idiotic. It's historically ignorant. The Dutch empire existed at the exact same time. The Spanish Empire existed at the exact same time. The French empire existed at the exact same time. There were colonial attempts within Africa. There were colonial attempts from China. Their colonial attempts all over the world. The question is, what distinguished the British Empire from, say, the Russian Empire. But distinguished the British Empire from the other empires on earth that were competing with the British Empire. And there, you have to say that the overwhelming legacy of the British Empire is good.

"Longest reigning monarch Queen Elizabeth II, a symbol of stability in a turbulent era that saw the decline of the British empire, died on Thursday after 70 years on the throne. She was 96, Buckingham Palace announced her death at Balmoral Castle, her summer residence in Scotland, where members of the royal family had rushed to her side after her health took a turn for the worse. A link to the almost vanished generation that fought World War II, she was the only monarch most Britons have ever known. Her 73 year old son, Prince Charles, automatically became king, and will be known as King Charles the third, it was announced. Charles II wife, Camilla, will be known as the queen consort. A funeral will be held after ten days of official mourning. The flag over Buckingham Palace was lowered to half staff as the second elizabethan age came to a close. The impact of her loss will be huge and unpredictable, both for the nation and the monarchy, an institution she helped stabilize and modernize across decades of enormous social change and family scandals, but whose relevance in the 21st century has often been called into question. The public's abiding affection for the queen has helped sustain support for the monarchy during the scandals, King Charles, formerly known as the Prince of Wales, has not been afforded such popularity. In a statement, King Charles called his mother's death a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family, adding, I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country. The realms and the Commonwealth and by countless people around the world. The monarch for whom abdication was never an option, died peacefully at balmoral on Thursday afternoon, two days after undertaking her final public constitutional duty, with the appointment of the 15th prime minister of her 70 year reign. Since February 6th, 1952, Elizabeth reigned over a briton that rebuilt from a destructive and financially exhausting war and lost its empire, joined the European Union and then left it and made the painful transition into the 21st century. She endured through 15 prime ministers from Winston Churchill to Liz truss, becoming an institution and an icon. A reassuring presence even for those who ignored or disliked the monarchy. She became less visible in her final years as age and frailty curtailed many public appearances, but she remained firmly in control of the monarchy, and at the center of national life as Britain celebrated her platinum jubilee, with days of parties and pageants in June. Elizabeth's inner life and opinions remained mostly an enigma of her personality, the public saw relatively little. A horse owner, she rarely seemed happier than during the royal ascot racing week. She never tired of the companionship of her beloved Welsh corgi dogs. Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was born in London on April 21st, 1926. The first child of the duke and duchess of York, she was not born to be queen, her father's elder brother, Prince Edward, was destined for The Crown to be followed by any children he had. But in 1936, when she was ten, Edward VIII abdicated to marry the twice divorced American Wallis Simpson and Elizabeth's father became king George VI. After the death of Queen Elizabeth II, condolences poured in from around the world for a woman who became a global icon of calmness and fortitude through decades of political upheaval and social changes at home and abroad. In India, once a British colony, prime minister Narendra Modi called Elizabeth a stalwart of our times. She personified dignity and decency in public life Modi tweeted. President Joe Biden was informed of her death by senior advisers during a meeting at the Oval Office, Elizabeth, who had met with 14 American presidents at The White House, was a stateswoman of unmatched dignity and constancy, who deepened the bedrock alliance between the United Kingdom and the United States, said Joe and Jill Biden in a statement saying she defined an era. They later went to the British embassy to offer condolences. Russian president Vladimir Putin sent a telegram to King Charles the third, for many decades, Elizabeth II, rightfully enjoyed the love and respect of her subjects, as well as authority on the world stage. I wish you courage and perseverance in the face of this heavy irreparable loss Putin said. Elizabeth was mourned across the 54 nation Commonwealth, a group built around Britain and its former colonies. For most Canadians we have known no other sovereign Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau said he called her a constant presence in our lives and her service to Canadians will forever remain an important part of our country's history. Former president Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, said she made the role of queen her own, with a rain defined by grace, elegance, and a tireless work ethic, defying the odds and expectations placed on women of her generation.

"Muir joining us once again is People magazine, senior royal editor Michelle tauber. Michelle, it's really hard to imagine anyone other than Queen Elizabeth on the throne. It's really true. And in fact, unless you are one of the few people on the planet who have been alive almost a hundred years, you don't know a life or a world without Queen Elizabeth on the throne. Everyone knew she couldn't and wouldn't live forever. But we simply haven't known a world without her. And that's a very significant upheaval. We kind of know her as this global grandma. But when she's on the pages of your magazine, she comes across as a lot more than that. She was glamorous. Yeah, you know, it's really interesting with Queen Elizabeth because she has worn many hats. She's actually worn thousands of paths. Throughout her lifetime. And she began as a very young princess, of course. Who was really still figuring herself out when she took the throne. And was very glamorous in the early years of her reign. Had married a very dashing naval officer. And they were the most regal couple in the world. She evolved into a woman who most contemporary modern people know as this global grandmother figure, some historians have said that they always felt she was meant to play the role of grandma. It was sort of her most natural and fitting role. And she was very good at it. But even in her tenth decade of life, she was still someone who could turn heads by the mirror choice of an accessory of a hat of one of her many stunning crown jewels that she had the privilege of wearing throughout her life. So it was sort of a balance of glamour and yet interestingly she always she always pulled it off in a way that didn't make her feel I think as remote as she could have. When the queen finally gave that speech following Princess Diana's death, that was one of those iconic moments. Are there other moments that stand out to you as we look back on her life? For me, one of the moments that continues to resonate and has really stuck with me is pretty recent, in fact, and it was the christening of Meghan and Harry's son Archie. And I really thought it was the most remarkable moment in modern royal history. There's a photo taken from that christening where we see Queen Elizabeth, greeting the baby, greeting William and Harry and Prince Philip is there. And greeting Meghan's mother doria. And was unlike anything we've ever seen. In terms of welcoming an American daughter in law, granddaughter in law into the royal family, a black American mother in law, this new baby, it was really just something I think that no one truly, this family that's very, very sort of sealed off. And so many ways for so long. It really was, I think, a powerful visual of new life and change and progress being breathed into this family over which Elizabeth had presided as matriarch for a hundred years or so. And that was something I'm not sure again. We could have ever imagined even in not too long before. So for me, I really, I was glad to see that in the queen's lifetime. People magazine's

"Visit has given me the opportunity to reaffirm the ideals which we share, and the affection that exists between our people. During her reign, Queen Elizabeth II traveled underly 300 official state visits. She never had a passport, a queen doesn't need one, even so she was by far the most traveled monarch in history. The first writing monarch to visit Australia, China, Russia, post apartheid South Africa. After all, her reign began abroad on an official visit to Kenya as princess. There she learned of her father's death and returned home a queen. And so I was set and so she would later literally comment that she had not had the apprenticeship to become a Queen that you might have expected that she was. That year, Stalin was still the leader of the Soviet Union, Harry Truman was president. Presidents come and go, but the one constant thing between the relationship between the UK and the U.S. was the queen. She dealt with Gerald Ford, watched a ball game with George HW Bush. She had high tea with the clintons. In every state visit, there's something that either goes wrong or doesn't quite go to plan, but that's invariably the thing that we all focus on. When she wrote horses with Ronald Reagan. The queen was out riding at Windsor, which he'd requested. And he sort of gave an impromptu press conference at the top of the horse. The queen was so annoyed, she just dropped it away. When George W. Bush welcomed her in 2007. You helped

"Died, lilibet became Queen Elizabeth II, her coronation was an international sensation. But the British Empire Elizabeth inherited was falling apart all the colonies becoming independent nations, so she helped to create a new realm dubbed the British Commonwealth. When we were young, it was very easy to take your grandmother for granted. You know, she was just a grandmother to us. I've actually really learned to sort of understand and accept the huge deal that she is around the world. Elizabeth traveled the world more than 250 overseas trips, showing how the British monarch could change with the times and shape them, even as she raised four children, the most famous working mom in the world. She was a young woman in a man's world carving her own way through life and through a job that she, like any of us don't necessarily have all the preparations you'd like. The years brought their ups and downs, the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana seemed to be a highlight and Elizabeth watched as her daughter in law captivated the world in the 1980s. But when that marriage collapsed so scandalously, many Britons began to doubt the relevancy of the monarchy itself. When Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris, Elizabeth stayed in Scotland with her family, as waves of grief rolled over Britain, the queen was seen as unsympathetic and public anger at the royal family reached a fever pitch. And then she returned and joined her people in mourning. What I said you now, as your queen and as a grandmother, I say from my heart, first I want to pay tribute to Diana myself. She was an exceptional and gifted human being. As monarch, Elizabeth maintained tradition and yet moved just enough with the times.

"No other head of state has met more American presidents. And then you also note that venturing across the United States, she's made countless stops from supermarkets to Hollywood. She's expressed affection and hope for the United States. So what are some of the highlights of her relationships or meetings with American presidents? You talked about her meeting with Eisenhower after the Suez Canal crisis and her meeting with president Reagan at Windsor. So what are some of those moments that stand out? Well, of course she had known president ice and Howard in Europe during World War II and so there was great affection and respect for him and she had a wonderful relationship with president Reagan. They both joined horse flesh and they went riding together. So I think those were too highlights of her trips. She probably, we don't know for sure, but she must have enjoyed Harry Truman's frankness. He was, you know, he said what he thought. He didn't keep secrets. And she probably respected that. I can't match for that, but I would think that she had respect for his frankness. Right. She's met with 13 of the last 14 U.S. presidency. The only president she did not meet with was Lyndon baines Johnson, and as Deb said she had a great affection for Dwight D. Eisenhower based beginning, of course, with Eisenhower leading the forces, the allied forces in the World War II in the European theater. She danced with Gerald Ford and The White House, she greeted bush and the two bushes, her most recent visit, of course, at the palace was with Joe Biden. She likes America. She has a great affinity for America. Remember that on the day of 9 11, she had the American flag raise that Buckingham Palace on the national anthem played. She united Rudy Giuliani for that. Maybe she would have second thoughts about that now. But at the time, she, I think, was kind of symbolically showing her great respect and affection for America and the American people. And I think that to a large degree, the American people have responded in a very positive way toward her. So not every British monarch is a beloved and popular and you just mentioned Charles the first, case in point. But even in the modern age, the monarchy has waxed and waned, what has been the secret to her popularity. And here you have a woman who has reigned over an era of incredible change, but she is that one constant. So what's her secret? Dedication she has never once faltered, she is always there fulfilling her duties, you know, she can't wake up one morning and say, gee, I'm tired today. That's going to go cut that ribbon at this new place. She shows up. She does her duty as the monarch. She responds to people. There's a warmth about her which you saw in those balcony appearances just the other day..

"So you mentioned the Commonwealth of Nations before that. And just for our listeners, the Commonwealth, it was established in 1949 before just before her reign, and it's basically an association of nations that had been in the British Empire. So what's her role in that body? Well, she is the head of the Commonwealth. And the Commonwealth nations, the heads of state of the Commonwealth meet every two years and one place or another. We were there in Mozambique. When the queen. Visited there, just after the Commonwealth meeting in durban, South Africa, and so we saw all of these people in their traditional garb, a fascinating group of leaders from all over the world. And she has presided over that and kept it together. And this is crucial. And what will happen now when or soon relatively soon when Charles becomes the sovereign, bets are off. We're not sure that some of the nations in the Commonwealth will continue. They may want to continue unofficial status. But just to indicate the limitation of the queen's own powers, we had press credentials and we were standing on the balcony, it leading into the president of Mozambique's home where they were to exchange gifts and so on before a gala dinner in a special pavilion. So we're standing on the balcony and the queen comes up with Prince Philip and they we are Americans, so we don't vow to them, but we smile. They smile back at us. And they go into the house and then a few moments later, they leave and head for the pavilion. And there are toast to her majesty, the queen, and for this build, and then you would normally think she would be about to deliver her speech. No, there was silence. So we were thinking, what's happening? So suddenly we saw Jeffrey Crawford, who was a wonderful man who had facilitated a lot of our interviews, run back into the house, and I whispered to Jeffrey. What's going on? He emerges two minutes later, the queen left spectacles on the table. And I have to do a selfie dashes back only then could she read the speech that not she, but her government had prepared. Right. As Deadpool, I thought she could not speak in an occasion like that X temporarily. The speech is carefully crafted by the government, approved by the palace, and that's the speech he makes. Those are the remarks she makes. So in a sense, it must be very frustrating over all of these decades not to be able to speak your mind. Now Charles speaks his mind on a number of issues, the environment, agriculture, relationships with various religions, act one time, he said that when he would become sovereign, he would be the defender of faith, not as traditionally the defender of the faith, the Anglican faith, he since has now backed off on that and said he will be defender of faith. But we know what Charles, it's a wild card. He may say things that exceed the constitutional limitations of the monarchy. But he has been in all fairness to Charles. He has been a rock of stability to his mother during these trying times as we all know now from last week's jubilee celebrations, the her majesty has mobility issues. She was on the balcony at Buckingham Palace the first day with her cousin the Duke of Kent, she was very animated..

"Now the queen lived through World War II, which is amazing to think about. She was in her teenage years when it broke out. She was the princess, the daughter of the reigning king and queen. So what was that experience like for her? I think this was a crucial life-changing experience for her. She saw her parents remain in London. Visit bombed out sections of East London, famously bathed in one inch of water, maybe once or twice a week. They were heroic figures to their public. It was often said, how great of the public to have such a good king and George VI, let's say, how great for the monarch to have such a great public. And this was the life-changing experience and she learned duty that you always have to fulfill your responsibilities as best you can. And you always must be a sovereign who understands the public and the people. And she was a serving officer in the ATS during the war. She wasn't hiding out somewhere she was a working royal during World War II. And she, you know, so when victory came on VE gay, her parents actually allowed her to mingle with the crowd for a while to hear the cheers, you know, when the family came out on the balcony, the king and the queen and Winston Churchill that Elizabeth was in the crowd enjoying the spectacle of her family and the prime minister being cheered on the balcony. So how did she meet Phillip? You mentioned him early on. How did he enter her life? Well, actually, she met him for the first time at the age of 8 when they both attended the wedding of princess Marina of Greece, but at 13 is the moment the spark started to fly when she and her parents visited the naval.

"She is the longest serving British monarch in history. She has reigned over an era of great consequence and dramatic change. She's lived through World War II, the Cold War, and everything afterward. She counts among her prime ministers, Winston Churchill, Clement attlee, Margaret Thatcher, and Tony Blair. She's met more American presidents than any head of state in her lifetime. She is Queen Elizabeth II. From June 2nd to June 5th of this year, the United Kingdom celebrated her platinum jubilee, an unprecedented 70 years on the throne. And what a 70 years it's been. Like anyone who has been in the public eye for so long. She's gone through her share of ups and downs. She's been scrutinized all of her life. She's been criticized for what she's done, and not done. But 70 years after taking the throne, and now in her 96th year of life, she remains as popular and beloved as ever. She is an indelible symbol of continuity and service in a time of great disruption. And if she lives for another two years, she will surpass French king Louis the 14th. For the longest verifiable reign in modern history. In short, she has lived a truly epic life. Our guests today have just published a remarkable book titled Queen Elizabeth II and oral history. Their names are Deborah Hart strober and Gerald strawberry. Previously, they've written oral histories about presidents Kennedy Nixon and Reagan. Evangelist Billy Graham, the Dalai Lama, and Rudy Giuliani. And I'm excited to have them on this episode to discuss the queen and her place in history. Well, thank you for being on our show. We really appreciate it. So.
