By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Prime Minister John Briceño on Thursday expressed condolences on the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
“Today, with a heavy heart our nation joins the rest of the Commonwealth in mourning the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” said Prime Minister John Briceño in a statement published by the Government of Belize Press Office.
“On behalf of Belizeans at home and abroad, I extend heartfelt condolences to the Royal Family, members of the realm and the Commonwealth.”
Queen Elizabeth died earlier on Thursday at the Balmoral Castle near Aberdeen Scotland barely two days after swearing in Great Britain’s new Prime Minister Liz Truss.
“Queen Elizabeth II served as the only sovereign of our nation and visited Belize twice,” said the Prime Minister.
“Her seven decades as Queen and Head of the Commonwealth can best be described as remarkable in the midst of these turbulent times.
“Her life of faithful service will never be forgotten by Belizeans, especially those involved in the scouting movement which she served as patron.”
The Prime Minister said Belize will pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth.
“In the coming days, we will honour the life of the Queen as well as extend our best wishes to her successor, King Charles III, as he takes on his duties as Sovereign and Head of the Commonwealth.”
The Prime Minister said details of the arrangements for the Queen’s memorial and tributes to honour her life and service will be announced shortly by the Government of Belize.
“May she rest in peace,” closed the Prime Minister’s statement.
