News from ANGUS COUNCIL – National Moment of Reflection – Queen

Written by on 15/09/2022

People across Angus are being invited to take part in a national Moment of Reflection before the State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

A one-minute silence is being held throughout the United Kingdom from 8pm on Sunday 18 September 2022, giving an opportunity for people to reflect on the lifetime of service which Her late Majesty devoted to the United Kingdom, the Realms and Territories and to the Commonwealth and to mourn her passing.

This National Moment of Reflection takes place on the eve of the State Funeral and the end of the period of national mourning and can be marked privately at home with friends and family, or by communities organising local events and vigils.

Angus Provost Brian Boyd said: “The respect and great affection for Her late Majesty, as well as the very high esteem in which is held, has been clear for us all to see in recent days. I felt extremely proud that the citizens of Angus came out in force to witness the funeral cortege passing through the county last Sunday and bid Her late Majesty a heartfelt farewell.

“I hope that similar or even greater numbers of people in Angus take this opportunity to pause for one minute on the eve of Her late Majesty’s funeral and reflect on Her epic reign, great service and devotion to us all.”
