Goodbye, Queen E

My late grandmother was a huge fan of the British Royal family.
So much so that in the past one of my most memorable childhood memories is remembering how my London-based aunty would always return to Malaysia with loads of goodies bearing the Royal family faces for my beloved grandmother.

All these merchandises would be well kept and hardly used making them look pristine at all times.
I even remember seeing some merchandise surrounding Charles and Lady’s D ill fated 1981 wedding littered throughout her house once.
She had held on to them even after the couple went their separate ways.

As a family, we have always loved Diana. 
But today’s commentary is going to be centred around on Queen E
Queen Elizabeth has always been a part of our lives and it is going to be uber weird now that she is no longer with us with her son Charles taking her place.
I have heard some really good things about Queen E in regards to her mannerism from a Malaysian dignitary who is now fighting a big corruption charge in Malaysia

Apparently, Queen E was a really down to earth person who had no air at all.
This dignitary had stayed over at the Buckingham palace after attending a banquet of sorts and the next morning, a plain cloth looking queen donning a headscarf came over to send them off when it was time for them to leave the palace grounds. 
She even stayed and waited until the chauffeur drove them off.

The Queen’s rather chill or sempoi attitude as the Malays would call it, really shocked this dignitary to the core.
Nothing was said to me about her son King Charles III but after seeing some bloopers on Twitter, I already have my doubts on how long this family is going to last under his stewardship.
His mannerism had reminded me of the King from the Emperor’s New Groove
On another note, I feel that Australia should stand on its own to feet and stop making UK royals heads of states here.
The UK is after all a separate country with its own set of laws.
So, why does a working royal be given so much power in Australia when the country itself is miles and miles away from the UK.

No one really knows how much this arrangement is costing the country. 
But despite that I did a simple Google search and found some figures here.
I know it is going to be very hard for Australia to separate itself from the UK, but try, mate.
Just so you know, this arrangement you have with the UK government really looks silly from the outside.

Just imagine a Malaysian or Bruneian King holding a position of power in Australia?
I know it is not the same considering the history Australia has with the UK but it’s kind of the same considering the fact that this is still going on in 2022. 
Now how does that feel?

Weird right?
But this is just my two cents. 
Anyway, goodbye Queen E, thank you for the memories.
