Queen gives in?! Surrenders her country?!


If you want to understand this, you have to watch the 2006 film “The Queen”, which is legally available on YouTube for a small fee):

You may have to watch this as well:

I remember the death of Diana. It was a Sunday morning and I was waiting for the bus, to visit my half-French friend Jettie in Amstelveen, who on that occasion realized that my grasp of French wasn’t half bad as we spent most of our time together that day watching French TV. She passed away a few years ago (was about two decades older), and I still occasionally think “Oh, I should ask Jettie about that” only to remind myself that I no longer can. Just an aside. As the film The Queen starts with that event.

My maternal grandmother – after who I was named – was born in the late 19-th century and lived through historic times, and I am witnessing historic moments in the UK now.

Qu’est-ce qu’on fait?
