Governor Tucker issues Statement on the death of Queen Elizabeth II

September 8, 2022

The Statement from Her Excellency the Governor, Sarah Tucker

“To the people of Montserrat.

It is with great sadness that I confirm Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, passed away peacefully earlier today, at Balmoral castle surrounded by her family. Our Queen for 70 years, for many of us the only Monarch we have known. The sense of duty, devotion and service to us all will never be forgotten.

Just three months ago, we celebrated the Platinum Jubilee here in Montserrat. We shared then fond memories of her visits here as our Head of State.

I know I join all of Montserrat in sending our condolences to the Royal Family as they mourn the loss of their mother, and grandmother.

I pledge my continued loyalty to the King and Queen Consort

The Queen was an inspiration, loved across the world, and will be greatly missed.

Tomorrow Friday 9th September at 8am, there will be a 96 Gun Salute in honour of Her Majesty the Queen at the Little Bay Cricket Ground.

All of Montserrat are invited to attend.

A Condolence Book will be available at the Governor’s Office from 10am tomorrow morning.

Those in the Government Service are asked to dress appropriately during this period of mourning.

As Governor, and supported by the Government, Judiciary and Church, I expect to make a Proclamation of our new Monarch, at Salem Cricket Ground on Sunday at 8:00 am.

The final timings for these events will be confirmed. We welcome any Residents or Visitors who wish to attend.

The Premier and I will travel to London to attend our late Monarch’s funeral to represent the people of Montserrat.

Further information will be issued by the Governor’s Office.”
