While almost the whole world is mourning one of the most beloved figures in modern history, Iran's authoritarian regime has claimed that the monarch's death is "good news for the oppressed people of the world", adding that the legacy left behind by Queen Elizabeth is "full of crime and filth".
Iranian state television called Queen Elizabeth "one of the greatest criminals in human history" and even compared her to the cruel Nazi leader Adolf Hitler in a series of shocking statements.
Queen Elizabeth Was Compared To Hitler
Iran's foreign ministry has not officially commented in any way on the death of Queen Elizabeth or the accession to the throne of King Charles III, while its government-linked TV channels have spread vile remarks about the former sovereign.
On Channel 1, scholar Foad Izadi of Tehran University said, "Perhaps, in light of her 70 years on the throne, she should be included on the same list as Hitler."
"From a certain perspective, we should be saddened that this person died, because she died without being tried, without being punished, and without paying for her crimes. The Queen is a famous imperialist, colonialist, war criminal, the aggression of the British army around the world is done under her name," Foad Izadi added.
Of course, the scholar of Tehran University forgot to mention that Iran's authoritarian regime is constantly accused of numerous human rights violations and terrible crimes against its own people.
Queen Elizabeth II died at Balmoral aged 96, after reigning for 70 years. She was the UK's longest-serving monarch. She died peacefully on Thursday afternoon at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer.
Her son, prince Charles, became King Charles III. He said the death of his beloved mother was a "moment of great sadness" for him and his family and that her loss would be "deeply felt" around the world.
