A Tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
9th September 2022
I know I speak for all of us when I say that I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty the Queen. I think this will be a huge shock to our nation and also the world.
Queen Elizabeth has ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history and is the only Monarch any of us have ever known. For more than half a century of huge change, here and across the Commonwealth, the Queen has been a figurehead of national unity and stability. She has led at all times with a quiet determination and selfless devotion, and has been all that is the very best in us.
As HRH Prince Phillip the Duke of Edinburgh was to her, she has been our nation’s strength and stay. Our rock.
Whilst being our Monarch, she has also been a loving Wife, Sister, Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother and raised a family whom she adored, and they her. She has in every sense been a truly remarkable Monarch and we are all the better for having her reign over us.
All of us join the Royal Family and the nation in their grief and offer the Royal Family our heartfelt condolences.
