Steadfast servant mourned

Steadfast servant mourned

Today is such a sad day for the state, the nation, and the world.

To wake to the news the Queen had died was an enormous shock, despite her 96 years.

Throughout her more than seven-decade reign, Queen Elizabeth upheld the vow she once made as a young princess – and that was to devote her whole life, to service.

She was the one constant in the lives of generations of Australians.

While I admired her from afar, she truly was an amazing woman.

A Queen – but also a mother, grandmother and great grandmother.

My thoughts are with the Royal Family at this extremely sad time.

Long live the King.

State Member for MacKillop Nick McBride
