How to talk to children about the death of the Queen

Queen Elizabeth II

Our thoughts are with the Royal Family, and everyone who is experiencing feelings of grief and loss, following the death of our Queen.

She was our longest serving Monarch and a Mother, a Wife, an Aunty, a Grandmother and a Great Grandmother.

Loosing such a prominent figure head may trigger feelings of previous loss or you or you children may feel anxious about the future.
