In Albufeira, Britons mourn the death of Queen Elizabeth II – Portugal

Tears, standing anthem and applause. On Rua da Oura, the news of the death of Queen Isabel II moved Britons on vacation in Portugal.

Bare-chested Britons, with pints blanks scattered around the table, while watching football games. This is a common image on Rua da Oura, Albufeira. This Thursday, the euphoria of football games was interrupted by sad news — the queen is dead. Queen Elizabeth II had died. At the King’s Cross bar, during the break between Arsenal – FC Zürich for the Europa League, the images transmitted by the televisions suddenly changed the pitch with the announcement of the BBC pivot Huw Edwards, in a suit and black tie. Laury, from New Yorkshire, cast her eyes to her face to brush back tears: “Oh bloody hell! She died! She died!” Next to her husband George, who was consoling her — “it happens, darling. I was already very old” —, was in tears. “This is so sad. I have so, so many memories of her. Many years ago I went to London, to Buckingham, just to see her. It was a beautiful moment”, she confesses to SATURDAY the septuagenarian, drying her tears.
