Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

21 April 1926 - 8 September 2022

Harrogate Borough Mayor Councillor Victoria Oldham said: "It is with great sadness to hear of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

"Her Majesty The Queen has been a constant source of courage and inspiration throughout the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and across the world.

"Throughout her 70-year reign, she has touched so many of our lives and led us through many dark but also many positive times.

"On behalf of everyone across the Harrogate district, I would like to offer our deepest condolences and sympathy to the Royal Family during this time.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with you all."
