Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was the longest ruling monarch in Britain’s history. Serving the United Kingdom for 70 years, her reign outlasted and endured wars and global conflicts such as World War II, The Troubles in Northern Ireland, as well as the decolonization of Africa. She was hailed as a queen who put her people and the commonwealth first, ahead of family, ahead of her personal life – her duties, traditions and overall commitment to the crown prevailed above all else.
In addition to the honor bestowed on the late Queen by Britain, global dignitaries from across the world also traveled to pay their respects. The African dignitaries who attended the funeral included: South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, President Paul Kagame of Rwanda, President Samia Suluhu Hassan of Tanzania, President William Ruto of Kenya, and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo of Nigeria.
Her Majesty was laid to rest on September 19, with processional services commencing in London, at Westminister Hall, and ending at Westiminister Abbey.
May Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II rest in peace.
