Town issues statement following death of sovereign

Queen Elizabeth II died Sept. 8 at the age of 96

The Town of Princeton has issued an official statement on the occasion of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, who died on Sept. 8 at the age of 96.

“It is with great sorrow that we learn of the death of our Queen, Queen Elizabeth II. Today we lower our flags to half mast out of respect and in remembrance of our beloved Sovereign. For most of us Queen Elizabeth is the only head of state we have ever known. She has served with dignity and will be remembered as a kind sovereign.

As we grieve with the Queen’s family, we acknowledge that Charles will succeed his mother and take on the burden of duty while mourning for his mother.

Long live the King”

Mayor Spencer Coyne
