STORYLINE:
In Argentina there were mixed feelings to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
At the British Embassy in Buenos Aires people signed a book of condolences and brought flowers on Friday.
"The love for our Queen goes far beyond many conflicts and vicissitudes," said Argentine medical doctor Roman Martin Garcia in reference to the Falklands war.
"Those 70 years of her reign were transversal to many events worldwide."
But for Falklands war veterans, the news stirs up emotions of the 1982 conflict that claimed the lives of more than 600 Argentine combatants.
War veteran Adrian Di Luch 59, said the Queen represents one of the darkest figures in history.
"She spent 70, 80 years stealing our wealth," Luch said.
