Kingfisher Court pays tribute to our beloved queen.
We have been truly blessed to live through the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, we have watched her grow, we have grown with her. We have celebrated every landmark, the birth of her children, her grandchildren, and great grandchildren, we have partied at jubilee celebrations and mourned the loss of her mother, her sister and her beloved husband, Prince Phillip. Her presence has been a constant, her loyalty to this country and to the commonwealth, unbounding and we shall be forever in awe of her and eternally grateful to her.
We, like the rest of the nation are still trying to come to terms with the sad news, it will take a while to process.
Here at Kingfisher Court, we have spent this weekend sharing our memories, we have taken a stroll down memory lane, we have laughed, remembering the excitement of the coronation, the jubilee street parties we organised with close friends and neighbours, and we have, of course cried, mourning the profound loss to the world. We have been following the televised coverage and the documentaries charting the life of our beloved Queen Elizabeth. We have begun to compose messages of support for the new King and his family and watched the official proclamation as it happened on Saturday morning.
Queen Elizabeth II served our country for 70 years and has left quite the legacy; we consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have witnessed her entire record- breaking reign and to have been afforded the privilege to call her our queen.
