“A life of undimmed duty, a model of strength and devotion to country…” said Premier David Burt today following news that HM the Queen passed away at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
“Queen Elizabeth’s reign has spanned decades of such immense change for the United Kingdom and the world. The recognition of her longevity and the significance of her service affords this
consequential reign a unique place in history.
Beyond the role which the Queen fulfilled for these 70 years within the UK and the Commonwealth, she was a mother, grandmother and great-
grandmother and her family is now mourning that loss.
On behalf of the Government and people of Bermuda, I express sincere condolences to the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom.”
Flags on all Government buildings will be flown at half-mast until further notice.
