Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II: books of condolence and flower layin

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Southwark remembers


Yesterday, Councillor Kieron Williams, Leader of Southwark Council, said:

“This is a very sad day for our country and for the Royal Family, who are very much in Southwark’s thoughts and prayers. It was a huge honour for our borough when Her Majesty the Queen visited the Shard in 2013; a short but welcome stop on what has been an incredible seventy-year long service to public life and to our country. I would like to extend our borough’s deepest condolences to the royal family at this difficult time.” Read more from yesterday’s reflections.
