Statement on the Passing of Her Majesty The Queen
The Commonwealth Forum of National Human Rights Institutions joins all those we serve in mourning the death of her late Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II.
Throughout seven decades, Her Majesty was a symbol of unity and strength at the heart of the Commonwealth. The Queen led in times of great change when the guarantee of our universal human rights was precarious and protections hard won.
The National Human Rights Institutions of the Commonwealth remember Her Majesty and a life of public service advocacy for the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family. This is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. The loss of Her Majesty will be deeply felt. Our thoughts and prayers are with His Majesty King Charles III and members of the Royal family in this sorrowful time.
