(NewsNation) — 1000’s crammed the streets to mourn the demise of Queen Elizabeth II on Monday, and the crowds have been crammed with a number of generations of Britons.

Lankston was joined by Notre Dame historical past professor Colin Barr on Monday as panelists of “NewsNation Prime,” the place they examined the legacy of Elizabeth.
