Lisa Vanderpump’s touching words about the Queen will bring you to tears

News of Queen Elizabeth II’s death on September 8th sent shockwaves around the world, prompting immediate reactions from politicians like President Joe Biden and musical superstars like fellow British citizen Elton John. Lisa Vanderpump was among the celebs who immediately took to social media to pay touching tributes to the late Queen.

The “Vanderpump Rules” star posted a message on Instagram and simply uploaded a statement instead of a picture amid the celebratory event. “We knew this day was inevitable, but such overwhelming sadness at the loss of one of the most inspirational women the world has known,” wrote Vanderpump. The British-born reality star opened up about how the legacy and death of Elizabeth II had an impact. “Not only a monarch, but also a matriarch of our country and the Commonwealth,” the Bravo-Lebrity added in the heartfelt text. Vanderpump’s followers took to the comments section to reiterate their sentiments. “Our country and the world are much sadder now,” replied one.

A few years earlier, in January 2020, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum opened up about how she took care of the royal family. Vanderpump was upset when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they were stepping down. “I think it’s a shame… I think we need it,” she told Us Weekly at the time, while mentioning how impactful Markle’s “feminist” view of the royals and the nation as a whole could be.
