193

His Excellency, President George Manneh Weah, on September 12, 2022 signed the book of condolence in honor of the late Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.

   The British monarch died last Thursday at 96 years, a few hours after she was put under medical observation at Balmoral Castle, Scotland. She served in the position for 70 years.

   Queen Elizabeth was enthroned in 1952 following the death of her father, King George VI.

   Accompanied by an array of government officials, President Weah performed the solemn diplomatic ritual at the British embassy in Monrovia.

   Earlier in a statement issued following the death of the Queen, President Weah expressed sadness and conveyed his deepest sympathy to the governments and peoples of the UK and all nations of the Commonwealth.

   He also described the Queen’s death as a colossal loss to the world, noting that Liberia, too, has lost a friend, who paid a historic visit to Monrovia in 1961 during the celebration of Liberia’s independence.
