QUEEN ELIZABETH-ll PASSED AWAY, PRIME MINISTER MODI MOURNS

Queen Elizabeth-ll passed away after a long illness. Queen Elizabeth-II was under medical supervision recommended by her doctors at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. 

 

British Monarch's doctors were concerned for his health from the start. Earlier British Prime Minister Liz Truss expressed concern for the monarch's health in a tweet, saying the thoughts of people around the country are with the Queen and her family.

 

According to news reports, members of the royal family have been informed about the Queen's medical condition earlier.  It was previously reported that the family members are going to Balmoral in Scotland.

 

The Queen turned 96 in April this year. Prime minister Modi expressed grief over Elizabeth's death and wrote on his social media handle, " Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be remembered as a stalwart of our times. She provided inspiring leadership to her nation and people. She personified dignity and decency in public life. Pained by her demise. My thoughts are with her family and people of UK in this sad hour.

 

I had memorable meetings with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II during my UK visits in 2015 and 2018. I will never forget her warmth and kindness. During one of the meetings she showed me the handkerchief Mahatma Gandhi gifted her on her wedding. I will always cherish that gesture".
