“The warmth and affection felt by the people for their Queen have been no more evident than in recent years, when she gave strength and reassurance to the public during a period of turbulence and uncertainty.

“Her qualities of loyalty, fortitude, consistency and strength of character have enabled her to surpass the reign of her predecessors and as she takes her place in royal history she will be fondly and lovingly remembered by those whose lives she touched.

“We will all have our own memories of Her Majesty and we pay the following tribute to a truly remarkable woman and an exceptional life well lived.”
