This Council notes:


·         The sad passing of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday 8 September, aged 96.


·         The Late Queen, our longest reigning monarch, dedicated her whole life in service of the people of the United Kingdom and has made an undeniable impact on our country. The Late Queen showed unwavering and inspirational dedication to serving the nation and the Commonwealth, offering wise counsel in often turbulent times.


·         The Late Queen remained firmly committed to carrying out her duty until the very end of her life. This was demonstrated by Her Majesty by working on official duties right up until she passed away.


·         The Late Queen opened Northwick Park Hospital in 1970.


·         The Late Queen visited Harrow in 1954 for Harrow’s Charter of Incorporation.


·         The Late Queen visited Harrow to celebrate the 50-year anniversary of the establishment of the Borough of Harrow in 2004.



·         In 2012 The Late Queen made a Diamond Jubilee visit to Krishna Avanti School to celebrate the multi-faith demographic of Harrow.


·         As well as achieving the country’s longest serving monarch, the Late Queen was an extremely popular Head of State in the United Kingdom and internationally and a public figure we can all be proud of both now and for generations to come.


This Council resolves to:


·         Commemorate the sad passing of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.


·         Formally commemorate our gratitude and thanks to The Late Queen for her 70 years as monarch.


·         Investigate naming the new Town Hall after The Late Queen, in honour of Her Majesty’s memory and role in Harrow’s creation as a London Borough.


·         Reaffirm the Council’s sense of public duty and strive to emulate The Late Queen’s commitment to serving the people.


·         Welcome the ascension of His Majesty King Charles III and wish him a long and prosperous reign.”
