HM Queen Elizabeth II – Requiescat in pace

HM Queen Elizabeth II
21st April 1926 – 8th September 2022

I am certain that each and every one of you will share my profound sense of loss and sadness at the news this afternoon of the death of our longest serving Monarch, HM Queen Elizabeth II.

Her unwavering sense of duty, loyal service and love for this country – and, indeed, the Commonwealth – never failed or faltered, in what was a lifetime of service and commitment to her people.

She was our Queen for so many years that most of us have only known one Monarch. It will take all of us some time during this period of mourning to come to terms with our collective loss.

God Bless Her Majesty and may she rest in peace.

God Save the King!
