In a few moments we will join with people across the United Kingdom in a Moment of Silent Reflection.  The start and end of the Minute here will be marked by a whistle.  During the Minute we will have an opportunity, in silence, to reflect on the lifetime of service which Her late Majesty devoted to the United Kingdom, the Realms and Territories and to the Commonwealth. 


The Queen was sure in her faith and steadfast in her duty, bringing constancy through 70 years of change.  We will remember Her late Majesty with affection and gratitude and silently give thanks in our hearts for her unswerving devotion to us and to our Country.


Ladies and gentlemen, it is now approaching 8.00 p.m”.
