Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was one of the greatest leaders the world has ever known.
She was the rock on which modern Britain was built.
She came to the throne – at just 25 – in a country that was emerging from the shadow of war.
She bequeaths a modern, dynamic nation that has grown and flourished under her reign.
The United Kingdom is the great country it is today because of her.
The Commonwealth is the family of nations it is today because of her.
She was devoted to the Union of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
She served 15 countries as Head of State and she loved them all.
Her words of wisdom gave us strength in the most testing times.
