Statement on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II

Statement from Robin Milton, Chair of Exmoor National Park Authority, on the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II

It is with great sadness that we reflect on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her life was dedicated to the service of this country and the Commonwealth, and she fulfilled her pledge to continue that service throughout her whole life.

Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time and we send them our deepest condolences.

Exmoor National Park was established in 1954, early in the Queen’s reign, to benefit the nation, and nearly 70 years on, Exmoor will continue to provide a place for reflection and wellbeing during this period of national mourning.

An online Book of Condolence for those who wish to leave messages is available on the Royal website.
