Death of Queen Elizabeth II – statement from Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, Donna Jones
08 September 2022
It is with great sadness that we have been informed of the death of our Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth ll.
Her Majesty the Queen gave a lifetime of service to our country and I wish to send my condolences to the Royal Family at this very sad time.
Many people in our communities proudly serve the Monarch, including serving in the Royal Navy, the British Army and the RAF based here in Hampshire.
This is a time for us to reflect on Her Majesty’s dedication to our kingdom and how she inspired unity, dignity, and leadership. She touched the lives of multiple generations as one of the longest serving Monarch’s in history.
This is a national time of mourning and reflection for people across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, and around the world.
As Commissioner, I will be supporting Hampshire and the Isle of Wight Constabulary, as servants to the Crown, to support communities in mourning and the coming together to mark this historic moment.
