“We are in mourning. Queen Elizabeth was a pillar of strength and resilience, today is a very sad day. The impact she had on all of our lives will be realised for a very long time. She was remarkable, she lived through many historic moments in her seven decades as head of state and she did it all with grace and elegance. An mana wahine ātaahua who will be sorely missed. She was a constant presence across three generations, a stalwart providing comfort in a constantly evolving world”.
