Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth has undoubtedly witnessed, written, and shaped many of the most relevant chapters in the history of our world during the last seven decades.

Her sense of duty, commitment, and a whole life devoted to serving the people of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland set an example for all of us and will remain a solid and valuable legacy for future generations.
