Her Majesty The Queen

It was with enormous sadness that the Royal Parks Guild learned on Thursday of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Many members of the Guild had the great pleasure of meeting Her Majesty. We enjoyed seeing the Queen attend her Diamond Jubilee event at Richmond Park (pictured above) and speak to Royal Parks apprentices and members of the Guild.  The recent Platinum Jubilee Celebrations in  St James’s Park were a fitting occasion to honour such an extraordinary life.  Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II leaves a remarkable legacy and it is truly the end of an era.

Her son and successor, King Charles III, a passionate advocate for the environment and The Royal Parks, announced that the period of National Mourning for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has started. The period of National Mourning will continue until the end of the day of the State Funeral, and therefore, we will not be sending out messages until this time as a mark of respect to Her Majesty.

If you wish to send your own personal messages to the Royal Household, the Royal Family has opened a public book of condolences on their official website, www.royal.uk.

The UK Government has released official National Mourning Guidance for the public, which in the coming period you and your friends may find useful. This guidance is available at www.gov.uk.

I hope you will join us in paying our collective respects to Her Majesty and the Royal Family over the coming period. We have posted on our social media channels our heartfelt condolences.

Best wishes, Michael Fitt Chairman The Royal Parks Guild
