Statement on the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Dear Colleague,

On this very sad day, please find below my statement on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and a link ( to my remarks in the House of Commons Chamber this afternoon during the Tributes to HM Queen Elizabeth II. Please do share this with any in your parish who you feel may be interested.

Best wishes,


Our great nation, the Commonwealth and people right across the world deeply mourn the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, our longest serving monarch.

Each of us will grieve in our own way, and many of us will have special memories of her reign that we will remember and cherish.

She was a constant in all of our lives, a beacon of purpose and continuity. Her commitment to duty, service and faith was steadfast, as was her deep understanding of people and British life.

We are all children of the Elizabethan age and her legacy will live on through her interests, her family and our shared values.

As the Archbishop of Canterbury said today ,"Great change can be unsettling but with change, comes the opportunity to think about ourselves and each other."

This will be a moment of reflection for our country, and with the passing of the Crown to King Charles III, a new chapter in the history of our monarchy and our country begins.

But one thing that will not change is the Queen's example to us all - of service above self.

God Save the King.

Andrea Leadsom

Member of Parliament for South Northamptonshire
