Last September, King Charles paid an emotional tribute to his late mother Queen Elizabeth II, following her passing.
“I pay tribute to my mother’s memory and I honour her life of service,” the King said in a statement. “I know that her death brings great sadness to so many of you”.
“And I share that sense of loss beyond measure with you all”.
He also added, “In her life of service we saw that abiding love of tradition, together with that fearless embrace of progress, which make us great as Nations. The affection, admiration and respect she inspired became the hallmark of her reign”.
“And, as every member of my family can testify, she combined these qualities with warmth, humour and an unerring ability always to see the best in people”.
