Sandra in Sydney Queen Elizabeth II / King Charles (254* d) RE: Queen Elizabeth II / King Charles 13 Sep 22


Here in the Land of Oz we are also getting far too much media coverage, both on-line, on paper, & on air. I have admired the queen for her dedication to duty, but I couldn't see what she has specifically done as queen of Australia.

I've never has a TV so haven't see live coverage, & as I prefer to listen rather than watch, I haven't clicked on any videos. As my usual radio stations (plural, Aust Broadcasting Corp, Govt radio) had hours of royal coverage. The only station without any news was ABC Jazz which I did enjoy for a couple of days. I've probably only read a dozen articles in total across all media, just some history articles.

One of my treasures is a scrapbook my proud grandfather made for his first grandchild (little baby me!) when the queen came here in 1953 & that will go to my cousin with other family stuff. I don't remember him & my cousin was born long after his death, it's not a royalist item, just a lovely family treasure.

Another family treasure is a book about the previous monarch's coronation that my father's sister gave him in 1940, & that will go to my brother. It's the only thing we have from dad's side.
