A guardsman takes his position ahead of the Queen Elizabeth II funeral.

When the news that Queen Elizabeth II died, we turned to a member of our HPR family. Ian Capps shared a very personal memory as an 8-year-old watching the queen’s parade leading up to her coronation many decades ago.

As the 10-day mourning period drew to a close with the Queen returning to Buckingham Palace where the family held a private service, The Conversation turned to another member of the HPR ʻohana in London.

Amber Khan worked as a producer on The Conversation for several years. She left to get her Master of Fine Arts in London. We talked with her about the mood of the city during this time of great change.

This interview aired on The Conversation on Sept. 19, 2022. The Conversation airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on HPR-1.

Catherine Cruz is the host of The Conversation. Originally from Guam, she spent more than 30 years at KITV, covering beats from government to education. Contact her at ccruz@hawaiipublicradio.org.
