Media statement issued on behalf of the Lt Col Patrick Holcroft CVO OBE Lord-Lieutenant of Worcestershire
‘On behalf of the County and people of Worcestershire, I offer our heartfelt condolences to Your Majesty and to the wider Royal Family at this time of profound national grief.
We share a deep sense of loss with all in the United Kingdom and abroad as we remember with great pride and affection Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, whose steadfast commitment and dedication to Country and Commonwealth have demonstrated an unparalleled example of constancy, duty and service before self, throughout her uniquely long and illustrious reign.
The nation has been transformed from a victorious yet war-weary imperial power into the modern, outward-looking country of today; and her part in that transformation has been simply immeasurable. Her late Majesty’s remarkable legacy at home and abroad will endure and she will continue to command the deepest respect, affection, admiration and gratitude of us all.’
God Save The King.
Lt Col Patrick Holcroft CVO OBE
Lord-Lieutenant of Worcestershire
