UK Prime Minister Liz Truss: "Queen Elizabeth II was the rock on which modern Britain was built."

Only having been appointed by Queen Elizabeth II a two days ago, the new UK Prime Minister delivered remarks on the Queen’s passing.

“The death of Her Majesty The queen is a huge shock to the nation and to the world. Queen Elizabeth II was the rock on which modern Britain was built. Our country has grown and flourished under her reign. Britain is the great country it is today because of her. She ascended the throne, just after the second world war, she championed the development of the Commonwealth from a small group of seven countries to a family of 56 Nations spanning every continent of the world. We are now a modern thriving dynamic nation. Through thick and thin, Queen Elizabeth II provided us with the stability and the strength that we needed, she was the very Spirit of Great Britain and that spirit will endure.”
