Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster has paid a heartfelt tribute to Britain’s longest-serving monarch.
Commissioner Angelique Foster said: “It is with deep sadness that we mourn the loss of Queen Elizabeth II, following a lifetime of devoted public service.
“Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was a role model for every citizen in Britain and indeed the Commonwealth and across the world, with an appeal that transcended generations. A symbol of dedication, loyalty and above all a patron of hard work, with such a strong sense of duty to her country.
“Through times of strife and celebration, Queen Elizabeth II reigned with dignity and courage. Her legacy will continue to inspire generations.
“Most of us have only known one Monarch in our lifetime and how fortunate we are that it has been Queen Elizabeth II. We will miss her authority and guidance.
“As a much-loved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, our thoughts and prayers are with the Royal Family at this difficult time.”
