The official confirmation has arrived: Elizabeth II, Queen of the United Kingdom, died today 8 September 2022. The ruler was 96 years old when she died.
The Queen’s disappearance is a cause of mourning first of all for her subjects in the UK, but her death will certainly have a great impact on the whole world. Elizabeth II is an important figure in the world and has influenced the culture and art of the world, especially the Western one, during her long reign.
Even the world of video games could not help but be influenced by Elizabeth II, who in fact appeared in many video games. Examples include Flunky (1987), Spitting Images (1989), Yes, Prime Minister (1987) and Henry’s House (1984).
Looking for more recent games, we find for example Her Majesty’s SPIFFING in which the queen returns the only sovereign of the United Kingdom, after having dissolved the Parliament, and takes her nation into space.
Her Majesty’s SPIFFING
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, better known in our area as Elizabeth II, was born in 1926 and ascended the throne in 1952 (and crowned in 1953), after the death of her father. Her was the longest reign in British history: in 2015 she beat great-great-grandmother Victoria who had reigned for about 63 and a half years. It is also the longest reign ever for a queen in any monarchy.
We obviously offer our condolences to family, friends and all those who will be affected by his passing.
