A Book of Remembrance
Reflections on the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Born on 21 April 1926, Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms from 6 February 1952 until her death on 8 September 2022. She was the Queen of 32 different sovereign states during her life, and served as monarch of 15 of them at the time of her death. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days is the longest of any British monarch and the longest of any female head of state in history.
Behind those facts and figures, Queen Elizabeth II was a warm and compassionate head of state. She was as in tune with the people of the UK and other countries as it was possible to be. She was knowledgeable when talking with world leaders, yet clearly in touch when chatting with ordinary folk like you and me.
Elizabeth II was part of the fabric of our society like no other leader has ever been. She holds a place in our hearts which is something all other leaders try to emulate. This book contains some of the thoughts about her that the parishioners of Fressingfield wanted to share.
