Statement on the death of the Queen

The members of the Blackburn with Darwen Interfaith Forum are deeply saddened by the devasting loss of our Queen Elizabeth II and our thoughts and prayers are with the Royal family and the Nation during this period of mourning.

The Queen was the mother of our Nation as well as the Commonwealth and will be sorely missed by everyone in the United Kingdom and throughout the world.  We have lost the brightest light of this great nation.

We send sincere condolences to the Royal family and stand shoulder to shoulder, in solidarity, with the Nation at this very difficult time, pledging our loyalty and support for our new monarch King Charles III as he begins his reign.
