RIP Queen Elizabeth II

Many of you will have heard by now of the death of Britain’s longest reigning monarch, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a few hours ago. Britain and the commonwealth face a time of great change as King Charles III steps forward into the national consciousness as our new sovereign. Queen Elizabeth was a link with the past, with a former age, less frenetic that the one we find ourselves in today and her loss is shattering.

HV Morton was there, at many of the most significant points in her life – the death of her father, her wedding and her coronation and, as a chronicler of the history that was taking place around him, has given us a contemporary perspective of events untainted by modern spin and the dubious benefits of hindsight.

On behalf of the HV Morton Society I would extend deepest sympathies to the Royal Family on the loss of Elizabeth II, the mother of our nation, our rock. We will miss her presence and constancy, our anchor.

God bless the King.

    I was a child when her father King George VI died. That was a time of great sorrow but his legacy in our magnificent Queen Elizabeth II was a wonderful event which brought to the throne a brilliant example of what it means to be a Head of State. She was truly loved and will be mourned all over the world. But I give true thanks to God that we have lived joyously throughout the seventy years of her reign. She will be sorely missed. God save King Charles III.

    The Queen was ‘already’ there when I was born..so in way she was a lifelong companion as well. She will be missed.
