1:18 pm
all united in morning. queen elizabeth the 2nd was this great country's greatest bonnet. and for the vast majority of us, it feels impossible to imagine of britain without her. all our thoughts are with her beloved family, our royal family. at this moment of profound grief. this is a deep and private loss for them. yet is one we all share. because queen elizabeth created a special personal relationship with us, all that relationship was built on the attributes that defined her reign, her total commitment to service and duty, a deep devotion to the country, the commonwealth, and the people she loved. in return for that,
1:19 pm
we loved her. and it is because of that great. shad love that we grieve to die for the 70 glorious years of her reign. app queen was at the heart of this nation's life. she did not simply rain over us. she lift alongside us. she shad in our hopes and our fears. add joy and now pain out good times and out bad. our queen played a crucial role as the threat between the history we cherish and the present. we own a reminder, the child generational battle against the evil of fascism or the emergence of a new britain out of the rubble of the 2nd world will do not only belong to the past. but all the inheritance of each and every one of us. a reminder that the creativity, the hard work, the enterprise that is always defined,
1:20 pm
this nation is as abundant now as it ever was. a reminder that the prospect of a better future still burns brightly. never was this link more important. that when our country was plunged into, looked down at the start of the pandemic, a simple message that we would see family again, that we would see friends again, that we would beat together again, gave people strength and courage when they needed it most. but it wasn't simply the message that allowed a shake coordination to draw upon those reserves. it was the fact that she was the messenger cove. it close the front doors of every home in the country. it made our lives smaller and more remote. but she was able to reach beyond that to
1:21 pm
reassure us and steal us. but the time we were most alone, but a time would been driven apart. she held the nation close in a way no one else could have done it for that. we say thank you on the occasion of the queen's silver jubilee in 1977. philip lock in wrote of her right. in times when nothing stood but wes and all grew strange. there was one constant good. she did not change. it feels like we at once again in a moment in our history where as luck in put it, things all growing strange where everything is spinning, a nation requires a still point. when times of difficult, it requires comfort. and when direction is hard to find it requires leadership.
1:22 pm
the loss of our queen robes this country of its still his point, its greatest comfort at precisely the time we need those things most. but our queens commitment to us the life of public service was underpinned by one crucial understanding that the country she came to symbolise is bigger than any one individual or any one institution. it is the sum total of all our history and all our endeavors. and it will endure the late queen would have wanted us to redouble our efforts to turn our colorado and faced the storm to carry on. most of all, she would want us to remember that in these moments that we must pull together.
1:23 pm
this house is a place where ideas and ideals are debated. of course thought leads to passionate disagreement. of course, temperatures can run high, but we all do it in pursuit of something great. we do it because we believe we can make this great country objects, people greatest still at this moment of uncertainty where our country feels court between apostate cannot re live on a future yet to be revealed. we must always remember one of the great lessons about queen's right that we are always better when we rise above the petty, the trivial the day to day. to focus on the things that really matter. the things that unites us, rather than those which divide us our elizabeth and age may now be over. but her legacy will live on forever. and as the children of that era,
1:24 pm
it falls upon us to take that legacy forward. to show the same love of country the love of one another as she did to show empathy and compassion as she did. and to get frightened through this dark night and bring it into the dawn. as she did, we join together to day, not just to say good bye to aquila to sharon our morning, but to say something else employed. god save the k. because as one error ends. so another begins. king charles, the 3rd has been, i devoted servant of this country his entire life. he has been a powerful voice, the fantasy, and understood the impulse of the environment long before many others. as he ascends to his new road with the queen, come so by his side,
1:25 pm
the whole house. indeed, the whole country will join to day to wish him a long, happy and successful rain. dare mister speak of the emotions we see across the nation today? ah echoed across the commonwealth to which our queen was so committed in the church to which our queen was so devoted and any armed forces which she led and her family said around the world, people will be united in mourning for her posse and united, celebrating her life we've already seen beautiful tribute flow from across the world. it would be impossible to capture the mole head. but each one is a reminder of the esteem in which she was held of what she achieved on behalf of her country, of the shed values we treasure. the reason i lost feel so
1:26 pm
profound is not just because she stood at the head of our country for 70 years. but because in spirit, she stood amongst us as we move forward. as we forge a new path, as we build towards a better future, she will always be with us. for all she gave us and all she will continue to give us. we say thank you. my up queen, rest in peace. don't say a i don't call on the father of spiritual bolts from what i have been watching. british opposition leader kids darma and before him prime minister less trust address the british parliament honoring the late queen elizabeth. we will talk about those statements in a moment, but 1st let's go back to aberdeen airport in scotland, where dw correspondent emily gordon is standing by emily. i understand the king has
1:27 pm
arrived and is just now actually in the plain taxiing on his way back to london. tell us more. yes, he is almost ready for lift off. as he said he's bought the train or the plane, sorry. and he's accompanied by his wife, the queen, consort camilla. together they will travel to london, where he will with a king will needs come in to set his trust in the evening. he set to hold the suites and tomorrow you will, you will be officially proclaimed king and ultimately step instead of very big footsteps. that's pretty level of elizabeth leave behind. there we are seeing those live pictures now. all that royal plane taxing at the, on the runway, they're about to take off and make its way to london. emily, you mentioned a few of the new kings or priorities. what he's going to be doing,
1:28 pm
but talk us through in little more detail. the next step you mentioned he'll be proclaimed to morrow big shoes to fill. what is he going to be doing in the next hours and days? well as soon as he arrives in london, i mean he will, like i said, he won't leave the prime minister you over then tomorrow you will meet the accession council and that will let me send this confirmation to the king and then formulations will follow london around the country and it will be, you know, it will be a very well be a few days of, of morning here and am am, i think he will, you will join the british people in remembering the queen and in and, and, and then you know, on, in the we cannot forget that of course, this is his mother. it's not is not only the queen,
1:29 pm
but of course are king. charles is like mother, so no doubt during some personal morning. as you mentioned, charles will be formerly proclaimed king to morrow, but although it should be noted that he technically is already the king, he became the king, the moment of the queen's passing the ceremony. as you mentioned, emily will take place at saint james's palace in london, and in front of that ceremonial ceremonial body, known as the accession counsel. or can you tell us a little bit about some of the changes, the sort of momentous changes that this changing of the sovereign brains? absolutely, i mean, you will on the one hand of course have simply the change in character. i mean, the queen was nice being quite a political, whereas prince charles has been known to be more vocal, especially when it comes to environmental causes. and at the same time, you will then have changes only
1:30 pm
a name. so obviously the british people will now be singing, god save the king and not the queen. he will become the face of currency and post sumps and offices that bore the name of her majesty will now become his majesty. and while these changes seem quite minor, bear in mind this has been, you know, these, these, this has been in the queen has been the face of so many things to 70 years. people are used to saying god's saver cream people are used to seeing her on coin, so it will be it, i mean, your british, i'm a trade in evelina as long as we've been alive. we've seen the queen on the money. it's going to be such that sounds like it's something small, but i, i mean, i really personally feel that's quite momentous and it just in itself. absolutely. i mean there are, you know, i know my grandparents grow up with the queen. i know to.
