The Death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Carers Trust is deeply saddened at the news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Over the seventy years of her reign, The Queen has provided a constant example of selfless devotion to duty and public service. Without doubt, her unwavering style of calm leadership has been a reassuring presence in the lives of so many of us, particularly in times of national crises.
Her Majesty also devoted herself to innumerable charities and causes. Such dedication has had an enormous impact on the lives, life chances and wellbeing of marginalised, vulnerable and disadvantaged people not only here in Britain, but across the globe
At Carers Trust we were deeply honoured just two years ago when Her Majesty joined our President, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, in an online video call to speak to unpaid carers. The four carers on the call were deeply touched to hear how supportive Her Majesty was of their own selfless work to care for their sick and disabled family members. We know too that the Queen’s presence and encouraging words on the call were a source of both joy and pride to many of the millions of unpaid carers throughout the United Kingdom.
On behalf of our staff, trustees and the millions of unpaid carers across the United Kingdom, Carers Trust sends its sincerest condolences to members of the Royal Family as well as our deep gratitude for the example of her Majesty’s life.
