Leaders of commonwealth countries are sending expressions of sympathy and condolences to the royals on the queens’ passing, and so too has Prime Minister Dickon Mitchell and Opposition Leader Dr. Keith Mitchell.

As condolences and best wishes continue to pour out to the British community, Prime Minister, Dickon Mitchell, is one of the leaders expressing heartfelt sympathies and condolences to His Majesty The King, The Queen Consort, and all Members of the Royal Family on behalf of the Government and people of Grenada.

Government announced that as a mark of respect, flags throughout the State will be flown at half-mast until the date of Her Majesty’s funeral.

The prime minister’s statement reads as follows: “I am sincerely saddened to learn of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. As Head of the Commonwealth, Her Majesty’s steady leadership helped to unite people and countries from around the globe in common cause, and for this, Queen Elizabeth II will always be remembered. We mourn her passing and will continue to honour her legacy.”

Leader of her Majesty’s Opposition and leader of the New National Party Dr. Keith Mitchell, has also issued a statement on the Passing of Queen Elizabeth the II.

It reads, and I quote: It is with a deep sense of sadness that the Leader of His Majesty’s Opposition in Grenada, Political Leader of the New National Party and member of His Majesty’s Privy Council, Former Prime Minister, Dr. the Right Hon. Keith C. Mitchell learnt of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second of the United Kingdom.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth as Head of State of Grenada and of the Commonwealth provided tremendous inspiration to all for over half of a century and will be greatly missed.

Sincere condolences are expressed to His Majesty King Charles the Third, to other members of the Royal family and to the Government and people of the United Kingdom. Unquote
