Rise pays tribute to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and extends our deepest sympathies to all those grieving. Many people in Rise’s community have felt a strong connection with the Queen and some have received personal letters on their hundredth birthday.
In good times and bad, she never lost her capacity to smile and laugh, nor to inspire others with her warmth and kindness. During her 70-year reign she has been a constant presence during an era of great change around the world. In recent times, Her Majesty achieved the remarkable milestones of being both the longest-serving and oldest British monarch in history.
May she rest in peace.
