Q. Do you think the passing of the Queen will in any way impact Brand Britain?

 

A. There are bound to be many changes. Too early to exhaustively cover all. The easy ones are in every government symbols, be it coins, currency, security outfits etc etc, All will have to be replaced with the new King’s image. I can’t comment authentically about its impact on British economy as the country has a new PM and she has to address many issues. Specifically the energy crisis, a sluggish economy and geo-political issues. The seven days of state mourning might slow down a lot of decision-making but that would be temporary. I don’t know if the existing protocols of relationships of Commonwealth countries with the UK would undergo modification. Net-net one has to wait and watch. But one directional movement is a must. That is, the UK has to take a lot of popular and unpopular decisions to restore its glory. The Queen is dead, but Long Live the British Empire.
