Queen Elizabeth II

Our thoughts are with the Royal Family following news that Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.

Union flags at our offices will be flown at half-mast. We will keep our website updated with details of how you can access books of condolence, both physical and online, as soon as that information is available, alongside local services and events.

Her Majesty has been a huge part of our country’s public life and it is with great sadness that we heard of her passing.

I’m sure everyone will join with me in offering the county’s condolences to her family and I would like to invite everyone to take a moment and remember her in their own way.

The Queen visited Northamptonshire on numerous occasions during her reign and many of us remember the huge crowds that greeted her when she visited Corby for her 2012 Diamond Jubilee.
