Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II – 1926 – 2022
The Deutsch-Britische Gesellschaft Nürnberg e.V.
extends sincere sympathy to the Royal Family on the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
She was the longest serving monarch in British history, was much loved by the nation and dedicated her life to serving her people. Although 96 years old, she was a modern Queen and had a good rapport with young people.
As a kind and respectful person Queen Elizabeth II represented the true British spirit. Although as a person she will be missed, she always stressed that the Monarchy is a timeless institution and King Charles III will undoubtedly continue in the same spirit.
Long Live The King!
Some observations volunteered by DBGN members:
“the Queen steadfastly refrained from making any kind of political statement concerning either UK or world politics. However those who met with her emphasised that her detailed knowledge about world affairs was second to none.”
“there is no doubt that Elizabeth II as a person was definitely the ideal person for the tasks of a head of state: a sense of duty and impartiality are to be emphasized, both characteristics of her office that some, democratically legitimized, should take as a model.”
“I am amazed that the Queen could handle the formal invitation to Mrs Liz Truss to form the next government and 2 days later we hear the news of her passing. Such physical and mental strength of character!”
