Brief life summary
In this blog post, we would like to pay tribute to Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
Queen Elizabeth II was the monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. She was the longest-reigning queen in British history and the world’s second longest-reigning ruler.
Queen Elizabeth II was the eldest child of King George VI, who rose to the throne in 1936 following the abdication of his brother, King Edward VIII.
Her fate was soon altered when King George VI died in December 1952 from coronary thrombosis.
Elizabeth was officially coronated on June 2, 1953, at the young age of 25 in Westminster Abbey.
On February 6, 2022, Queen Elizabeth II became the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. After ruling for more than 70 years, she passed away on September 8th, 2022 at the age of 96.
The members and staff of Figaro London are deeply saddened by the news of the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
Her Majesty has lived through several generations and civilisational upheavals, becoming a mainstay in most of our upbringing. Political parties, prime ministers, and fashion trends have all come and gone, but the Queen had remained.
It is important to recognise and celebrate the Queen for her devotion, sense of responsibility, and service to the United Kingdom. From a very young age, the Queen provided leadership, and always acted with grace under pressure.
Her late Majesty sacrificed her adolescence and devoted herself to maintaining tranquillity in our nation. She will be remembered as the ultimate role model for her willingness, commitment, and grace.
We offer our condolences to the King and the rest of the Royal Family.
“We pay tribute to Her Majesty’s dedication and selfless devotion. She will be sorely missed by the many organisations for which she was Patron or President.”
The First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford
Rest in peace, Your Majesty, and thank you for your service.
