Reporter Georgina Maka speaks to people in the Commonwealth of Nations in the Solomon Islands as they watched the events on Monday.
Solomon Islands residents with TV sets pay their last respects to their head of state, watching events in London and Windsor from the former British protectorate in the Pacific. While some went out for their usual social activities and to enjoy the sea breeze, large screens were also installed in the Anglican church complex in the capital, Honiara, to pay respect to its members, while others went to the Pacific Casino , a famous place in the city.
One of the spectators was Connie Grouse, 67, who was working for the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation at the time of the islands’ independence in 1978.
“Growing up when the Queen started to reign, it’s so emotional for me as I was reminiscing about my younger days tonight, because I have a lot of respect for the Queen,” she said. “May our Queen Elizabeth, the longest-reigning monarch, rest in peace. I am very happy that I got to see the funeral procession of our Head of State and I am glad that I got to see this historic moment.
A sense of history was also running through the other spectators at the casino.
Timothy Assi, 40, called the funeral service a historic moment for him and said he was privileged to see it. “Today is a day that I mark as a day that will go down in history for me, I am very proud to say that when I am old, I will sit back and happily I will tell the stories of the funeral to my future grandchildren.” He said he had great respect for the late Queen as head of the Commonwealth.
“Today is a sad and historic day for me,” said 27-year-old Vasi Vekesa.
Jamaica’s bishop Herro Blair, who met with the Queen twice, woke up at 3.30 a.m. on Monday to make sure he didn’t miss a minute of her final farewell.
“I was struck by the sadness of that moment,” the 76-year-old said over the phone from Kingston. “It didn’t matter who he was, no matter what country he was from, everyone was so respected. Everyone paid tribute to him, everyone respected him the way he should be honored.
“When the service started, it was like military precision, everything ticked like clockwork. Everyone was ready to do what they wanted and the whole world stood and watched and listened and participated. I could shed tears; My eyes were wet because I was touched not by his hands but by his life.”
The Queen ascended the throne in 1952, a decade before Jamaica gained independence from Britain. Many on the Caribbean island now want to break ties with the monarchy. Given that Jamaica’s time zone is six hours behind the UK, the state funeral was primarily a draw for early birds and diehard royalists.
Blair, president and founder of the Deliverance Evangelistic Association, said: “I would guess most Jamaicans woke up to it this morning. I believe that, although we may be heading towards a republic sometime sooner or later, Yet most Jamaicans, if they don’t love the monarchy, love the queen.”
But spiritual life coach Carol Richard said many people associate the royal family with British colonialism and slavery. She said: “There are so many people who are still disappointed – and the despair goes to varying degrees of anger – that they realized what the Queen stood for and felt what she should have stood for. Such people are probably the last.” Won’t even look at the sacrament.”
Richard, 63, played the tune and was stunned by the spectacle. “Royalty is such an amazing experience. It’s all the pomp and order and discipline. Everyone is just extremely controlling and playing their part, but more than that, it’s the honor that the queen got paid so much that really is my stood for.”
She said: “I’m not passionate about it at all. I don’t have so many feelings for every person that is spread all over the world. If I had known the Queen personally, I would have felt something else, but Also because I believe she is gone with her god, I am at peace with that.”
Mikel Phillips, 50, an opposition member of parliament who filed a motion supporting the removal of the monarch in 2020, said: “It was an excellent farewell to someone who has served a lifetime as a queen and a mother. It was done with precision and suitability for the life she was living.
,But I was thinking in my mind that if we had taken that step towards republicanism then how would it be and what is the future for us? It is the end of an era for us as a country, the Commonwealth and the British people, just looking at what the future holds and what the new King will take on his way forward. ,
