Tributes to Her Majesty

The Archbishop of Canterbury paid his respects to the late Monarch.

“[People were] always struck by her ability to make them feel as though they were the most important, the only person in the room, the only person in the street, in the crowd…

Both Her late Majesty and His Majesty treat others as special because, for both, their faith is built on the same rock – the rock of Christ…

This is a moment of deep grief, indeed. As Her Majesty said herself, grief is the price we pay for love.”
