PM Lee’s Facebook statement

Deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty was the very heart and soul of the United Kingdom.

Her Majesty’s reign saw one of the longest periods of peace and prosperity in the history of the United Kingdom. Throughout her life, she steadfastly served the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. She performed her duties with devotion, grace, and humility. Her contributions to the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth, and indeed to the world will be recorded in history, and she will always be remembered fondly as a great world leader.

Her Majesty also left a significant mark on Singapore’s history and our longstanding close relations with the United Kingdom.

Her passing is greatly mourned by everyone in Singapore.
