On the passing of Her Majesty

Published on Tuesday, 13 September 2022 08:04

Sitting in front of a shrouded portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, Town of Swan River Mayor Lance Jacobson signs a letter of condolences to the Royal Family on the day of Her Majesty’s death. The letter will be available to the public in the Town office for a few more days to sign as well before it is mailed off to the Queen’s family. At the moment of Queen Elizabeth’s passing, her eldest son Charles automatically became King of Canada, the United Kingdom and many other
countries around the world where the Royals remain the official heads-of-state. After 70 years on the throne, Queen Elizabeth had nearly the longest reign of any sovereign ruler in world history, second only to King Louis XIV, who became ruler of France at age four and reigned for 72 years.
