On behalf of us all at BringItBack, we would like to join those around the country, indeed around the whole world, in paying tribute to Her Majesty the Queen who died peacefully at Balmoral on Thursday evening.
In a life dedicated to the service of her country, she remained a symbol of constancy and stability in a world engulfed by change.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to the entire Royal Family at this time and join our readers and subscribers in expressing our profound gratitude for all she did and all she stood for. We will never see her like again.
May Her Majesty Rest in Peace.
Queen Elizabeth II 1952- 2022
