Since yesterday, the Queen's life has been up and down in the media around the world. She has served her country longer than anyone before her. You can see the Queen at any age, her coronation, meeting important people from all over the world. Including, of course, the 15 British prime ministers she has experienced, from Winston Churchill to Margaret Thatcher to Liz Truss, who the Queen swore in just two days before her death. The Queen with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren. Sometimes when hunting and with their dogs - and above all, of course, when representing in front of their people.
The Queen has held her nation together for 70 years. Sometimes better, sometimes worse. What does the change of throne mean for the UK? This is explained in this episode by Stefan Kornelius, head of the SZ political department.
