Statement from The King following the Death of The Queen




The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family. 

We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother.  I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.  

During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which The Queen was so widely held.


" I Did but See Her Passing By, and Yet I Love Her Till I Die."

In gratitude to God for Her Majesty's lifetime of dutiful service to Her peoples and the world. A beautiful light to us all has been extinguished.




 

Prayers for Her Majesty the Queen

,
Almighty God,

whose Son Jesus Christ exchanged the glory of a heavenly throne for the form of a servant, we thank you that you have given Elizabeth our Queen a heart to serve her people, and have kept her devoted in this service beyond all who were before her: encourage us by her example to serve one another, and to seek the common good, until you call us all to reign with Christ in your eternal kingdom.

Amen.
