The passing of The Queen will affect us all in different ways whether a royalist or not. For some it will trigger their own experiences of losing someone close to them, for others the shifting mood of the community will affect us, the radio you listen to will sound different, the TV will be programmed differently, it will be impossible to ignore. For children this may be difficult to understand and confusing. At this time keep conversations open, answer questions honestly, show your emotions and say its ok to feel sad.
Show your children that this is a time to remember all the good memories; use art, write poems, create memory boxes of items to remember the person by.
We send our heartfelt condolences The Royal Family at this time.
