“In representation of the International Council of the English-Speaking Union, I would like to express our sincerest condolences on the passing of the late most gracious Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, who left us at her estate in Balmoral Castle, with her four children, along with her daughters-in-law, and Prince William and Prince Harry, in Her ninety-sixth year and the seventieth of Her reign. Our deepest sympathies are with the Royal Family, the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.”
