The day the UK has been dreading. The death of the longest reigning monarch in British history at the age of 96. At the age of just 21, on Her birthday, the then Princess Elizabeth took part in a radio broadcast dedicating Her life to the Commonwealth, announcing ‘’I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.’’ Her astonishing reign, lasting more than seven decades, longer than any other Monarch in British history, selflessly demonstrated the true and loyal commitment to public service. Just two days before Her death, she met Her 15th prime minister demonstrating how duty was served right up until her death.
