King Charles thanks Mayor of Dudley for message of condolence

The Mayor of Dudley has received a card from King Charles thanking her for a thoughtful message of condolence after the Queen’s passing last year.

Councillor Sue Greenaway wrote to the King on the borough’s behalf in September to express sympathy on the loss of his mother, who was the UK’s longest reigning monarch.

The King has since responded with a signed message thanking Dudley’s first citizen for her comforting words at a time of immense sorrow for the Royal Family. Councillor Sue Greenaway, the Mayor of Dudley, said:

“I was touched to receive this personally signed message from the King and I’m glad to hear that he found our letter to be a source of comfort at such a difficult time.

“Sharing the borough’s sympathies on the loss of the Queen was fitting after her life of service and dedication, including three visits to Dudley.”

Residents who are interested in hosting street parties to celebrate the coronation of King Charles will be able to apply for permits from next week.

The coronation will take place on Saturday 6 May and will see the King crowned alongside the Queen Consort.
