Statement from leader of the council, Peter Mason

The people of the London Borough of Ealing collectively mourn the passing of Her Majesty, The Queen.

Her Majesty made a solemn promise at the start of her reign that her whole life would be dedicated to our service. Many residents of this borough will recall with great affection the events and engagements her Majesty attended in this borough and reflect on the historic moments that we have as a community experienced together under her moral and spiritual leadership as our monarch.

The pride and devotion she so often demonstrated to us was reflected with such warmth and grace in the thanksgiving for her service in this the Platinum Jubilee year, at street parties and celebrations across our borough.

We now share in the grief of the nation and of the Royal Family, that our Sovereign Lady, Queen Elizabeth the Second has passed away.
