A Message of condolence from the Governor on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II

“On behalf of the people of Victoria, I extend my sincere condolences to His Majesty The King and to the Royal Family on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Her Majesty’s life was dedicated to service, including to Australia and to the Commonwealth, and will be remembered with deep affection.

During many visits to Victoria through the decades, The Queen touched the lives of countless Victorians from every walk of life. Victoria now joins the world in marking the end of a life devoted to duty. 

Throughout her reign, Queen Elizabeth II exemplified service and grace and inspired respect from people across the world. 

My husband Anthony and I will fondly remember Her Majesty. It has been my honour to serve as her representative in Victoria.”
