    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Prince/King Charles.....is he well liked and does he have the capability to serve the UK?
    I know that he is way ahead of the game on climate change and is a great advocate for our earth.

    It'll be interesting to watch the historic events over the next few weeks. It has been 70 years since the last King or Queen of England funeral of and the coronation of the heir to the throne.

    Hello everyone,

    Here are a couple of things in Canada that will de affected by the Queen's passing. The Crown is our Head of State.

    Our currency will change (the Queen is on our $20.00 bill), our postage stamps will, in time, carry King Charles III's portrait. Prosecutions in courts, always done in the name of Crown, will take place in Courts of King's Bench; things like that.

    There are going to be a lot of protocols to be followed here as we transition to a new sovereign.

    May the QUEEN RIP. I also wish Mrs. Foley to RIP and pray for her family. One of my captains lost his mom this morning. He broke down yesterday when he pulled me aside to update me on the dire situation before she passed away at 4:30 this AM- my heart breaks for him!
    Trip 38 booked for Feb! Cant wait.

    I didn't think about those types of changes for the courts.

    I'd figure it would be easier to change postage stamps than money.
