Queen Elizabeth broke royal tradition by having Prince Philip join her in the delivery room when she gave birth to Prince Edward.

Her death marks the severing of a bond that tied modern Britain, and also much of the rest of the world, to the wartime era-of all the major world leaders, only US President Joe Biden, born in 1942, shares any connection to that period.

The death of queen Elizabeth brought to a close the modern Elizabethan era, and saw a huge display of public mourning, rounded off by a funeral, attended by the guests from across the world, which was rich in pageantry.

The future is King Charles III, a very different monarch, for a very different country, in a very different world.
