HRH Queen Elizabeth II
We are deeply saddened by the news that Her Majesty The Queen has passed away at the age of 96. This may well be one of those few momentous occasions where we will all be able to remember where we were when we heard the news of her passing.
She was the UK’s longest-serving monarch, after reigning for 70 years. It is testament to her sense of duty and relentless work ethic that she was still working well into her 10th decade. This dedication to service has won her huge numbers of admirers from across the world, and especially here in the UK. She will be sorely missed but will rightly live long in the national memory.
On behalf of all at St Michael & All Angels’ Church, we send our condolences and heartfelt sympathies to The Royal Family, as we pray for them, all those involved in her life of service, the nation, and the Commonwealth.
May the Queen rest in peace.
Long live the King.
Fr Kevin, the Churchwardens & PCC.
