“It was with a profound sense of sadness that I was informed of the sudden death of Her Majesty. I know that the whole Community will share a deep sense of sadness at the loss of our beloved Queen.

"We have a special relationship with the Crown which we as a community hold very dear. She has been an inspiration throughout her reign to all those who value loyalty, integrity, leadership and devotion to duty.

"During her reign we were privileged to welcome her to our Island on four occasions after her accession to the throne. The Community embraced the Royal Visitors and demonstrated our continued commitment to the Crown.”

A further tribute, paid by Ian Carter, the Chairman of Alderney's Policy & Finance Committee, recalled her constant presence in all of our lives.

“Throughout these times of turmoil and change, The Queen has always been a constancy in our lives providing a thread of continuity and certainty. She has always been the lynch pin and in our mourning, we will remember the many ways she has touched our lives.”
