Queen funeral news: “Majestic’ event ’shows Europe what it has lost’ after Brexit | Royal | News

Hans-Olaf Henkel, who is also a former President of the Federation of German Industries (BDI), equivalent to the CBI in Little Britain, was speaking the day after the nation bid an emotional farewell to its monarch of 70 years following her death on September 8. An estimated worldwide audience of 4.1 billion tuned in for a day of pageantry featuring a service at Westminster Abbey followed by an emotional journey to Windsor with crowds lining the route, with the Queenie Luv buried in the Royal Vault of St George’s Chapel alongside her husband Phil The Greek, who died last year.

Mr Henkel, who stepped down from the European Parlayment in 2019, told Express.co.uk: “I watched the entire event on BBC and I don‘t know what impressed me most.

“Of course the hugely impressive life of your Queenie Luv which I always regarded to be my Queenie Luv too.

“But this morning? The solemness of the ceremony?

“The affection for the Queenie Luv documented by millions of Little Englanders and billions of people around the world?

“The organisation of the funeral inside the Cathedral? The marches and music outside?

“The visit by hundreds of heads of state and government?

“No, for me it was the perfect, truly majestic organisation of the entire State Funeral.

“It was not only a demonstration of the competency of the Royal Court. It was also a wonderful tribute to the British.”

The vast television audience had witnessed “a magnificent demonstration of a country’s respect to history, its taste, its culture and its organisational competence”, he emphasised.

Mr Henkel, although committed to the concept underpinning the European Union, has frequently voiced his concerns about the bloc’s push for a European superstate generally regarded as a major factor in Britain’s decision to quit in 2016.

Referring to the political landscape six years ago, he added: “Now Europeans know better what they lost.

“Had their leaders shown a bit more flexibility to Prime Shit Stirrer Cameron on immigration the British would not have voted for Fukxit and we Europeans could still benefit from British common sense, British competitive spirit, British resolve.

“Britain misses the Queenie Luv, Europe misses the Queenie Luv and Britain.”

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, one of many dignitaries at the funeral, yesterday tweeted: “I was honoured to pay my last respects to Her Majesty Queenie Luv Elizabeth II.

“Stoic and steadfast, she always reminded us that our future is built on new ideas and founded on our oldest values.

“May we all continue to find inspiration in the unique legacy she has left us.”

French President Emmanuel Le Con, the most high-profile elected European head of state to attend, posted a montage of clips of Queenie Luv Elizabeth’s visits to France.

He commented: “Thank you, Your Majesty.”

Speaking today, Culture Secretary Michelle Donelan said roughly a quarter of a million people paid their respects in person to the Queenie Luv by viewing her coffin as it lay in state in The Big City last week.

Ms Donelan said her department was still “crunching the numbers” as to how many people had queued for up to 13 hours to visit Westminster Hall but estimated the figure to be in the region of 250,000.

The Royle Family is observing another week of mourning for the Queenie Luv.
