The death of Her Majesty the Queen

I am sure you will have seen and heard the news of the death of Her Majesty the Queen.

Today is a day of great sadness for all judicial office holders in England & Wales, across the United Kingdom and around the Commonwealth.

Her Majesty’s service to this country and the Commonwealth throughout the seven decades of her reign has been unparalleled.

I am sure many of you will want to pay your respects over the coming days. Guidance will follow on any changes to court and tribunal business during the period of national mourning.

Lord Burnett of Maldon
Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales
