You will have no doubt heard the news that The Queen passed away yesterday afternoon at Balmoral Castle, with her family at her side.
The loss of Britain's longest reigning monarch seems unimaginable as she had been the one constant in our ever changing country.
Cllr Janet Mote, Mayor of Harrow, has spoken on behalf of the residents of Harrow:
“As we mourn our late monarch, we also remember the family at which she was the centre. I hope all those close to her can find solace in our late Queen’s exceptional life of service and the global outpouring of sadness and deep affection that her passing has heralded.’
Cllr Paul Osborn, Leader of Harrow Council, has also released the following statement:
“Her Late Majesty represented us all, regardless of background or affiliation – she was a queen for the whole world. She united us in admiration for her service and her steadfastness. The late Queen was someone whom we felt we knew and who represented a central continuity in all our lives.”
The Union Flag was lowered to half mast last night (pictured below left) after the announcement of The Queen's passing. If you wish to lay flowers for The Queen, the stairs to the right of the Civic Centre (see picture below right) have been cordoned off for this purpose.
God Save The King.
