Certainly.  She always seemed to be a class act.  Just happened to be born on the same day and year as my Dad.  She'll be missed.

Well, had we met, I would have actually bowed to her, even though us ungrateful colonials ain't supposed to.  Primarily because she actually served in WW2.

Charlie not so much.

Being a dedicated all men are created equal, not really into royalty how ever I have always loved Queen Elizabeth.  She was a class act and always acted for the benefit of her people.  I too think it was amazing she served in WWII.  One of the greatest stories I can recall from the late 70s / early 80s with Bader-Mainhof gang and other terrorist groups raising hell and doing bombings there was some public event Sylvester Stalone would not attend do to the threat.  About the same time there was the Annual trooping the colors parade in England.  All of ERs advisors told her she could not ride in the parade because she was the Queen and the treat was to great.  Her reply was I shall ride because I am the QUEEN?  The grand lady had balls and would do her duty.
