Death Of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Sep 09, 2022

The Bailiff and acting Lieutenant Governor, Sir Timothy Le Cocq, has issued the following statement:

“I know that islanders will be deeply saddened, as am I, at the news from Buckingham Palace of the death of Her Majesty the Queen. It is almost impossible to overstate her importance in the life of the nation and all her dominions in the 70 years of Her reign. She has been an example of duty discharged and promises kept, and she has worked tirelessly over the decades for the wellbeing of all her peoples and of the Commonwealth.

There will be time in the days and weeks to come, to reflect on all of that but today we can only feel the sadness, of the loss of a person who has been a constant presence in our lives, and who is held in this island in such great esteem and affection.

We should also remember that this is also a private time of grief for the Royal Family and our thoughts and prayers are with them now as they come to terms with the loss of a mother and grandmother.”

The following arrangements will be in place to mark the death of Her Majesty the Queen.


Flags to be lowered to half-mast, with immediate effect until further notice.
