previous British monarch . But very recently our Queen

nation in the world ,with an ever-expanding overseas empire.
• She ruled with dignity, setting the moral standard for the
nation and giving her name to the age in which she lived.

the week! And an important day after a hard

read out loud while everyone else seated
