The Monarchist League of Canada says we are now in unchartered territory with the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Spokesperson Barry MacKenzie says a traditional, conservative mourning period from the last passing of a monarch in 1952 won’t look the same in 2022.

“It’s going to be a bit unusual for people. It’s going to take some getting used to because it’s not typically how we express mourning in a public way – in quite so formal a fashion.”

MacKenzie says she will be buried with great pomp and circumstance in a state funeral.

“I expect services of thanksgiving in the nation’s capital and communities all over the country, both in churches and community centres as people find their own way to mark her passing.”

MacKenzie notes although Charles became king immediately upon the Queen’s death, a coronation won’t likely be held for a year or more given the time it takes to plan one.
