Edward Timpson CBE KC, Member of the High Court of Parliament for the Eddisbury County Constituency, said:
The death of Her Majesty The Queen is a huge and sudden shock to us all in Eddisbury, and worldwide.
Queen Elizabeth II was the rock on which modern Britain was built, and our United Kingdom has flourished under her reign.
Her spirit is the spirit of Britain, which has endured on the throne of our great nation for 70 years.
And I have no doubt that that same spirit will endure further as the Crown passes to her son, His Majesty King Charles III.
With The King’s family, we mourn the loss of his mother, and must come together as a people both to support him and to help him assume the great responsibility that lies ahead of him.
We offer him our loyalty and our allegiance.
God save the King.
