County Celebrated Queen’s Reign In 2015

Queens Reign

Reflecting back on the life of Queen Elizabeth II, Reeve Alvin Hubert reminded Council on Tuesday of the special celebration held for her back in 2015. On September 9, 2015, some 30 people joined Council at the County office in order to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s reign with a special tea held in her honour. On that date she became the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth’s longest reigning monarch.

In appreciation of the gathering, Christopher Sandamas, Chief Clerk to the Queen, sent Reeve Hubert a letter expressing the Queen’s thanks and sending her best wishes. The framed letter can be found in the display case at the County office.

Elizabeth was Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms from February 6, 1952, until her death in September, 2022. She was queen regnant of 32 sovereign states during her lifetime and 15 at the time of her death. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days is the longest of any British monarch and the longest recorded of any female head of state in history.

She died on September 8, 2022, aged 96, at Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Her burial is scheduled for September 19, 2022, at King George VI Memorial Chapel in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
