I am deeply saddened by the news that Her Majesty The Queen has died.
The Queen has been a rock of stability for our nation, and the world, throughout her 70 years on the throne.
Queen Elizabeth II embodied so much of our shared history and she represented our great nation to the world.
Her service, dedication and duty have inspired us all.
My thoughts and prayers are with The Royal Family at this time of national mourning.
The Queen's death is not just a loss for this great country but the world.
May she rest in peace.
