A moment to pause and reflect

Dignity, respect, service, duty. These are words that often seem remote and old-fashioned in our modern and often turbulent world but were personified by the late monarch. I have been struggling to write something appropriate this morning but my words are inadequate for the solemnity of the occasion. Whatever your views on the institution of a constitutional monarchy I hope that most agree that Queen Elizabeth II embodied the best qualities of her age and was a much-loved icon of our times. She will be missed greatly.
