Today, we mourn the passing of our extraordinary sovereign. While it is a deep, private loss for the entire Royal Family, all our thoughts are with them at this time, and we mourn alongside them. The nation has come together to share in their grief at this terrible time.
We will always treasure H.M. Queen Elizabeth II’s life of service and devotion to our nation and the Commonwealth – and, while she was our longest-serving monarch, she was also the greatest of them all in bringing the people together. She stood for the best interests of the nation, and served it with every fibre of her being. The Britain she knew and loved changed remarkably during her reign – from the jet-driven aspiration of the 1950s to the digitisation of the 21st century – but her dedication was unwavering.
The second Elizabethan age has now drawn to a close, and we should all honour her memory by conducting ourselves with the same decency that she embodied throughout her life for the country she loved so much.
H.M. Queen Elizabeth II – our Queen – secured a great legacy, and we shall honour and treasure that.
God save the King.
