The Queen ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history, becoming a much loved and respected figure across the globe. Over 70 years, Her Majesty was a dedicated Head of the Commonwealth, linking more than two billion people worldwide.
The Queen was served by 15 UK Prime Ministers during her reign, beginning with Winston Churchill in 1952, as well as many Prime Ministers across her Realms.
As Head of the Armed Forces, Her Majesty had strong links to naval ships, army regiments, and air squadrons both in the UK and throughout all her realms.
We thank Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, who has been exemplary in representing this country. Her dignified and unwavering service is an inspiration to us all.
Rest in Peace
Queen Elizabeth II
1926 – 2022
