Obituary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Royal Decree of Her Majesty King Charles III: Address to the Turks and Caicos Islands Parliament

Chairman, and Honorary Member of this Assembly.

Mr. Chairman, you have offered me the opportunity to make a statement in the House of Commons.

This is the first time since taking office. Circumstances that prompt it are never desirable, but given that the late Queen has left us and a new King has been proclaimed, it is the opportunity I am most grateful for.

Members of the House of Commons will know that I have served Her Majesty the Queen in uniform and in wider public affairs for 40 years. As a result, I have strong feelings of my own about her Majesty’s death and, more importantly, her most remarkable life.

On this one, I’ll stick to my own advice. Because I know there is this Congressman who has seen the late Majesty more often than I have. More importantly, this is your House, and I’m not going to speculate about myself. Words and thoughts that lead your compliments.

So we only look back yesterday when the King, accompanied by the Queen, addressed the Houses of Parliament as a whole at Westminster Hall. Built in 1097, this monumental structure is where the late Queen’s coffin will soon be laid to rest, and the Prime Minister and I, on behalf of the Turks and Caicos Islands, pay her final respects. A place to go to pay.

Regarding our late King, her son, now Charles III, said in Parliament yesterday:

We gather today to commemorate the remarkable period of Her Majesty’s devotion to her country and people. sworn to uphold the precious principles of politics.

To this oath she kept with unparalleled devotion. She set an example of her selfless duty. With God’s help and your advice, I have resolved to follow you faithfully.

He continued:

As I stand before you today, I cannot help but feel the weight of history that surrounds us. History is a reminder of an important parliamentary tradition in which members of both houses are committed to the betterment of all of us. Congress is the living breathing vessel of our democracy.

The Speaker of the House addressed the King and said:

We know you have the utmost respect for our unique history and the precious traditions, freedoms and responsibilities of our system of parliamentary government. Majesty.

For my part, I can only say that this relationship between Parliament and the King, and the seamless transfer of power between past and present monarchs and past and present prime ministers, is built upon many things in the same week. . In this chamber, the traditions and the courtesies we offer each other and, for that matter, the courtesies you offer each other are also important. In times like these, tradition is important not only to provide comfort, but also certainty.

Mr. Speaker, thank you for convening the House of Commons on this sad but special occasion to pay tribute to the late King. She has had many things to do, but at her core, she is a devoted Christian who knows that she will rest in peace and rise again in glory, so that her son and the new King, Charles, I wish the third reign a long and successful one. He had the most exemplary woman, both mother and queen, to show him the way.

May God bless these Turks and Caicos Islands. May God accept his faithful servant, Queen Elizabeth II, as he has been faithful to us. And may God save the king.
