Former Premier Dr. the Hon. Ewart F. Brown on the Passing of Queen Elizabeth II

Former Premier of Bermuda, the Hon. Dr. Ewart F. Brown on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“During my premiership, Wanda and I had the honour of hosting Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip when they visited Bermuda in November 2009. We recognized then, and we do so now, that irrespective of anyone’s political persuasion or beliefs, the Queen is someone to salute for 70 years of exemplary, steadfast, and tireless public service.


What a stateswoman! To die at 96–only two days after attending to her duty to receive and give assent to the new British Prime Minister—what an amazing feat to serve for so very long and remain committed until virtually her dying day! Our prayers are with the Queen’s family, the people of the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth, and throughout the world. We have lost one of the most extraordinary figures in history.”
