West Midlands Lord Lieutenant led tributes to Her Majesty The Queen

The Lord-Lieutenant of the West Midlands, John Crabtree, OBE, has sent a letter of sympathy to The King following the announcement of the death of his mother.

The Letter said, “On behalf of the County of West Midlands we send our deepest sympathy to The King. There is great sadness across the West Midlands, the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth at the death of The Queen. Our thoughts are with His Majesty and the Royal family at this time.

As an expression of our sadness, flags are flying at half-mast and many books of condolence are being opened at locations throughout the County of West Midlands.”

Mr Crabtree paid tribute to The Queen and her work during her 70-year reign.

“I am sure I speak for all of the citizens of West Midlands when I say that our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this very sad time.

"Her Majesty was a frequent visitor to the West Midlands and the people of this County always welcomed her with great warmth. During Her extraordinarily long reign, the longest of any British Sovereign.

"She served us faithfully and whilst Her support will be deeply missed, Her contribution and outstanding service will be long remembered.  

"We now reflect on the past with gratitude and offer our future support and loyalty to The King and the Royal Family.”
