Fragile Bird Posted September 9, 2022 Author Share Posted September 9, 2022 (edited) All kinds of interesting things have been reported in the last day, two of which have been the fact most people alive today will likely never hear God Save the Queen sung again, with Charles and William there, and the fact I previously mentioned, Elizabeth was Queen for almost half of Canada’s existence as a nation. The third thing I heard today was about currency. All you guys in the Commonwealth, take a look at one of your coins with Elizabeth’s head on it. Apparently it’s tradition that no succeeding monarch faces in the same direction as the previous monarch. Elizabeth looks to the right on our coins, Charles will be looking to the left. I assume this is the same tradition in other Commonwealth nations. *I see the coin flipping was mentioned in an overnight post (for me) in the UK thread.
