Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Today, we mourn the passing of a remarkable sovereign.
It is a deep, private loss for the Royal Family and all our thoughts are with them at this time. The nation shares in their grief.
We will always treasure Queen Elizabeth II’s life of service and devotion to our nation and the Commonwealth; our longest-serving and greatest monarch.
Above the clashes of politics, she stood not for what the nation fought over, but what it agreed upon. As Britain changed rapidly around her, this dedication became the still point of our turning world.
So as our great Elizabethan era comes to an end, we will honour the late Queen’s memory by keeping alive the values of public service she embodied.
For seventy years, Queen Elizabeth II stood as the head of our country. But, in spirit, she stood amongst us.

It is with great sadness that people in Wales mourn the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Throughout her long and exceptional life, as our longest reigning monarch, Her Majesty has reigned over the United Kingdom and Commonwealth firmly upholding the values and traditions of the British Monarchy.
We pay tribute to Her Majesty’s dedication and selfless devotion. She will be sorely missed by the many organisations for which she was Patron or President.
We offer our sincere condolences to her children and their families on this sad occasion.”
Leader of Welsh Labour and First Minister of Wales
