Thank You for a lifetime of service.
You were the epitome of monarchy and of duty fulfilled.
You wrote history. For many of us You were the bridge that connected the ever-changing world of the present to the vast and majestic field of history.
Now history has taken You forever in its arms, and cloaked the world in mourning.
You are forever happy in the glory of eternity.
Today we say our final farewell, until – as You once said to us in dark times – we meet again.
