His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Robert Voss CBE CStJ, was honoured to be invited to attend the funeral of the late Queen at Westminster Abbey at which he represented the people of Hertfordshire today.

In a statement, he said: “It has been an incredible honour to be a part of history at this emotional and most poignant of services. To have served Her Majesty was a great honour and to attend her funeral equally so.

“I was privileged to be seated in the front row and witnessed and felt the huge emotion as-with head bowed-Her Majesty’s coffin went passed a mere foot or two in front of me. With head bowed I recalled what an amazing person Queen Elizabeth was and for so long.

“Being so close, I also felt so much sympathy for King Charles and the entire Royal Family saying farewell to a mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother and all in the glare of some 4 billion people across the globe.

“But I was able to silently say a fond farewell from the people of Hertfordshire to the sovereign who had served us all so well, for so long.”

The service saw attendance from all members of the Royal Family, as well as dignitaries from across the Commonwealth and other nations around the world.
