Rep. Duncan Releases Statement on the Death of Queen Elizabeth II
“The Queen has remained a symbol of strength and fortitude during her monumental seven-decade reign. I am inspired by her love of country and faithful devotion, and her presence will be profoundly missed. Queen Elizabeth II’s grace and poise have been a constant for the United Kingdom during her ninety-six years of life, from her time serving in the military in World War II to reigning as monarch for an unprecedented seventy years. I especially admired her strong and genuine faith in Jesus Christ and her steadfastness in her role as head of the Church of England. During her lifetime and as Queen, she established relationships with American Presidents and has been a close ally and friend to the United States,” said Congressman Jeff Duncan. “Our prayers are with Queen Elizabeth II’s family and the United Kingdom as they grieve the loss of an incredible woman who led an extraordinary life.”
