Queen Elizabeth II’s death and funeral have dominated news headlines for nearly two weeks, thanks in large part to Britain’s lengthy national mourning period.

Some of the people lining up to visit the queen’s casket and staking out spots along the funeral route described the moment as offering a much-needed dose of community and positivity amidst challenges like COVID and the war in Ukraine.

But it’s also been a source of frustration for people who say the extent of the focus and coverage is distracting from other important subjects — like, for example, the hurricane that knocked power out across Puerto Rico on the day of the queen’s funeral.
