A page in the history of the United Kingdom was turned on Thursday, September 8, 2022. After a record reign that lasted no less than 70 years, Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96. For the record, the eldest daughter of King George VI had acceded to the throne on the death of her father in 1952, when she was only 25 years old. In the end, the young woman knew how to adapt perfectly to the demands of the role of Queen of England, since she became a true popular icon in Great Britain. Thus, the disappearance of the English monarch, who had celebrated her Platinum Jubilee a few months ago, plunged many British subjects into deep disarray.
Shortly after the official announcement of the death of Elizabeth II by Buckingham Palace, many people, both celebrities and anonymous, hailed the memory of their former sovereign on social networks. Among the many reactions posted online, that of a little boy stood out on Tik Tok. In a short video of about a minute, the mother of the child in question filmed the first absolutely adorable reaction of her son, when she informed him of the death of the Queen of England. In fact, the young boy immediately thought that Elizabeth II was going to join her husband in paradise. The child even rejoiced in a way, because the Queen of England will once again be reunited with the love of her life: Prince Philip.
