Queen Elizabeth II remembered across Canada, India, Kenya

The World

As bells tolled and gunshots rang across the United Kingdom to mark Queen Elizabeth's passing, the monarch's legacy was remembered across former colonies with a mixture of nostalgia, bitterness and indifference. Reporters Anita Elash in Toronto, Canada, Sandip Roy in Kolkata, India, and Halima Gikandi in Nairobi, Kenya, have stories of the queen's specific relationships with each of these places, and how she's being discussed today.
