A Michigan woman made her trip to the UK far more emotional than expected as she spoke about the death of Queen Elizabeth and said she was “choked”.

After 70 years on the throne, Queen Elizabeth died Thursday afternoon at Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Heartbroken tourists flocked to Buckingham Palace early Friday to commemorate the longtime monarch.

“She was the epitome of what it means to be graceful and a woman,” said Nancy Campbell of Michigan.

“And to be calm and collected. I didn’t always agree with things, the way she treated Diana, I mean at least that’s what we hear in the States, could have been kinder but at the end of the day she had a tough job and she kept her head up and her did a good job.”

Toronto’s Michele Baker said she was “sad but we have to celebrate what she did,” adding, “It’s interesting and kind of epic.”

“I think she will leave a legacy like no other,” Baker said. “That’s my take on it. I just don’t think anyone will ever be able to do what she did.”
