DDP 2022

The year that the Queen died was a right royal one for the DDP.

It was a year where many of the major celebrity deaths were sudden or of private health battles, thus not on the DDP, but we still farewelled giants like Sidney Poitier, Bernard Cribbins, Olivia Newton-John, Mikhail Gorbachev, Angela Lansbury, and in the waning hours of the year Pope Benedict XVI and Pelé – himself a DQSP hit.
