The long reign of Queen Elizabeth II was marked by her strong sense of duty and her determination to dedicate her life to her throne and to her people. On her 21st birthday the young Princess Elizabeth declared to the Commonwealth that
‘my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service.’
For more than 70 years, through times of prosperity, innovation and hardship, Her Majesty never wavered on that pledge, leading by example and showing the world what true service and dedication means.
On behalf of everyone at Stirling Education, I would like to express our sincerest condolences on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Our thoughts and prayers are with all members of the Royal Family at this time.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II leaves behind a remarkable legacy, having ruled for longer than any other monarch in British history, and her faithful leadership, selfless service and voice of reassurance throughout her seventy-year reign will be remembered by us all.
