'She tried to stop independence movements'

One user pointed out the queen's actions during Britain's colonial age: "Reminder that Queen Elizabeth is not a remnant of colonial times. She was an active participant in colonialism.

One troll wrote, "I'm sorry, queen elizabeth ii can't come to the phone right now. why? oh, 'cause she's dead!"
