Tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

Posted onJuly 1, 2022byAngloSwedish

The Anglo-Swedish Society committee wishes to pay tribute to the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away yesterday. Through long and faithful service to realm and Commonwealth she has been an inspiration to all. She served her country  for 70 years, maintaining dignified stability through enormous upheavals. Our thoughts and prayers go to her family.
