A special program as Clairsy & Lisa reflect on the extraordinary life of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II, including how the BBC broke the news.

We crossed to Tracy Vo at Buckingham Palace, and Royal expert Dr. Cindy McCreery detailed the events that led up to the Queen’s passing and, of course, what will happen next.

Throughout the morning, we kept the phones open where you shared your stories about meeting the monarch.

If you didn’t get to join us this morning, hit PLAY to listen in…
