Queen’s demise: Premier Mark McGowan pays tribute to Britain’s longest reigning monarch

Premier Mark McGowan has paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, saying she has been a “tower of strength” during her 70 year reign.

As the world comes to grips with the tragic news from Buckingham Palace that Britain’s longest-reigning monarch has died, Mr McGowan took to Twitter to pay his respects and tribute to the 96-year-old.

Extending his condolences to the Royal Family and those mourning the loss of the Queen, the Premier said the Late Majesty has been “a tower of strength” in a “historic reign” ever since her coronation at the age of 25.

“Our thoughts this morning are also with the people of the United Kingdom, as they mourn the loss of Queen Elizabeth the Second and the end of her historic reign,” he said.

“During her 70-year reign she has been a constant presence during an era of great change in her kingdom and around the world.

For many, she is synonymous with the post-World War II era in a way that no other head of state could ever be.

The Premier added most West Australians would not have known another monarch, with the second Elizabethan-era now coming to a close following her death.
