The Passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. On behalf of myself and all Norfolk

Freemasons I pay tribute to Her Majesty’s lifetime of selfless service as our Head of State and as the unerring symbol of stability and hope throughout the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and beyond.

Her Majesty’s leadership, unwavering dedication and the example she set, in doing the right thing, will stand forever as the legacy of her seven-decade reign.

Her Majesty would traditionally reside at her Sandringham Estate, here in Norfolk, on the anniversary of her ascension to the throne as it was there, her father, King George VI passed away in 1952. Her Majesty’s presence and influence in Norfolk is something we were lucky to have and will greatly miss.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Royal Family and as we enter a period of mourning, we will unite as a country to remember and celebrate the life and achievements of Queen Elizabeth II, God bless the Queen.
