King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort, were visiting the city of York on Wednesday when a protester hurled at least three eggs at them and shouted, “This country was built on the blood of slaves!”

Nice sculpture even if it looks more like Victoria than Elizabeth.

The expression on that statue is arrogant and authoritarian.
If they wanted to accurately portray QE2, they ought to have striven for humble, dignified and constipated, as she always appeared in reality.

I never thought of Queen Elizabeth as belligerent.

it seems like she’s in shrouds, her position is not Her as she ever really appeared publicly, the facial expression is campy. The British Royal Family doesn’t DO public displays of emotion, or at least QE2 never did. And so the sort of hawkish air to the statue is so wrong, IMO. Too Marvel Universe.
