By Benjamin Flowers: Today, Her Excellency Dame Froyla Tzalam, Governor General of Belize, issued a statement of condolence on behalf of the people of Belize, following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
H.E. Tzalam conveyed the nation’s deep sorrow to the family and friends of the Queen, who was the monarch of Belize and 14 other countries and head of the Commonwealth.
“The Queen ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history having just celebrated 70 years earlier this year. She was a much loved and respected figure across the globe. Her extraordinary reign has seen her travel more widely than any other monarch, undertaking many historic overseas visits,” Tzalam said.
The Governor General also noted that the Queen was known for her sense of duty and her devotion to a life of service, she has been an important figurehead for the UK and the Commonwealth during times of enormous social change.
In the wake of the Queen’s passing, the Governor General has requested that as a sign of respect and mourning that all national flags be flown at half-mast commencing today until her committal service.
She also hailed the beginning of the reign of the new monarch King Charles III, saying “Long Live the King!!”
