The Queen is dead, long live The King.

When I woke up this morning to give my first company wide presentation to 400 people, I was not expecting to also see the news that Queen Elizabeth II was in declining health. Once I heard that, I knew the other shoe would drop within the day and when I heard the news, I felt incredibly sad.

Monarchy issues/faults aside, I believe she was a strong woman who was incredibly dedicated to her role. She was the longest reigning monarch and the last Queen a lot of us will see in our lifetime. She took the throne at 25 years old and had truly dedicated her life to ruling. She took her job incredibly seriously and has been a steadfast figurehead for really the entire world. 

The UK now has a new monarch... King Charles III and Queen Consort. Prince William and Kate are now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Cornwall... everyone moves up in the line of succession. This is a huge deal not just for the United Kingdom but for the entire world. I am really interested to see how the world reacts to King Charles and what happens next.

This is a big deal and even though we knew it was going to happen, it still feels like a big shock.

If you didn't know, I am NOT from the UK but I have always had a fascination with the Royal Family, from Princess Diana to William & Kate's wedding... I started this blog a year after the Royal Wedding which is why it is named Royally Pink. 

We'll now get into regularly scheduled programming...

Pink Positivity of the Week

I feel like I've had another epiphany of sorts this week. I was in a bad place at the start of the week (even though it started on Tuesday) and I think I'm just too in my head. I need to stop thinking and start living... that felt like a really good breakthrough. That, and the fact that I got through my first presentation at the new job, with over 400 people listening in.
