Flags are flying at half-mast at Hammersmith & Fulham following news of the death of the Queen. They will remain lowered, as a mark of respect, until after her state funeral.

It follows a message issued by Buckingham Palace on 8 September 2022 confirming the death of Britain’s longest-lived, and longest-reigning monarch, at the age of 96.

Tributes have been paid to the first British monarch to commemorate a platinum jubilee, when Queen Elizabeth ll marked 70 years on the throne earlier this year.

“I know I speak for everyone in Hammersmith & Fulham in expressing the deep sadness all of us feel on hearing the news about Her Majesty The Queen,” said Cllr Stephen Cowan, Leader of Hammersmith & Fulham.

“The Queen’s selfless dedication to our country and the Commonwealth defined her life and the best of our way of life, from her service while Princess Elizabeth during World War II to this week when as our Monarch she performed her constitutional duties even while gravely ill. We mourn her passing and send our sincere condolences to the Royal Family.”

H&F Leader Cllr Stephen Cowan has sent a formal message of sympathy to Buckingham Palace on behalf of all the residents of the borough of Hammersmith & Fulham. Books of condolence will be placed in Hammersmith Library and Fulham Library. Click here to read more.
