Osbourne shared nearly similar thoughts as he mourned with his country and noted “with a heavy heart” how devastating it felt thinking of England without the Queen.
Ciara did not write much but simply wished the late sovereign rested in paradise, while Rivers quoted a message from the Queen about being courageous without accepting defeat whenever life seemed hard.
On the other hand, Rowling mentioned that several might view the British people’s outpouring of “shock and grief” at the moment as odd. She then pointed out that millions felt “affection and respect for the woman who uncomplainingly filled her constitutional role for seventy years.”
