Floral tributes to Her Majesty The Queen

Floral tributes have been laid by the chairman of the Isle of Wight Council, Councillor Claire Critchison, and High Sheriff, Kay Marriott, as a mark of respect to Her Majesty, The Queen.

Each laid a posy of white lilies and roses at Church Litten, in Newport, where many residents have paid tribute by laying flowers and writing messages of condolence. 

The tributes come as the Island, and the nation, shares its grief over the death of the long-reigning monarch on Thursday.

Mrs Marriott said: "Her Majesty will be greatly missed, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Royal Family and the people of our Island community, to whom she meant so much."

Councillor Critchison said: "For those who wish to lay flowers in remembrance or take a moment of reflection, Church Litten is a peaceful and accessible place to be able to do this. Thank you to those that have made this possible."

A card placed by the chairman, read: "Thank you ma'am for your service. With best wishes from the Isle of Wight Council and the community."

Residents are welcome to lay floral tributes at the park or may wish to consider making a small donation to a charity supported by the Royal Family.

Further information on donations is available on the Buckingham Palace webpages here: https://www.royal.uk/
