Her Majesty the Queen

Statement from Provost Mary Montague

Queen Elizabeth II

East Renfrewshire Provost Mary Montague said: "It is with great sadness to hear the news that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has passed away. The thoughts of the residents of East Renfrewshire are with the Royal Family at this extremely difficult time. The Queen demonstrated extraordinary dedication and commitment to duty throughout her Reign and did so with a graceful strength and admirable determination. This is a period of public grief when people who do not know each other come together to mourn a national figure who has been consistent throughout our lives and for whom we have collective affection, despite not knowing her personally."
