Watford residents are united in mourning following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Books of condolence have been placed at the town hall and Watford museum should people wish to sign. Residents are also encouraged to pay their respects with a floral tribute at the Peace Memorial.

Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor and Chairman of Watford Borough Council, Councillor Amanda Brigston, laid flowers at the Peace Memorial this morning.

Mayor Peter Taylor, said: “Queen Elizabeth II guided this country through a period of great change during her 70 year reign, taking the United Kingdom from the post war years of the 1950s to the modern, global and diverse nation it is today. Throughout this change, Her Majesty’s steady and unceasing presence showed unwavering care and leadership for her people across the globe.  Her life was an example and inspiration to us all.

“As a nation, we now unite behind our new King. We trust and pray that, throughout his reign, he will uphold the dedication to duty and service shown so faithfully by Queen Elizabeth II for over seven decades.

“God save the King.”

Cllr Amanda Grimston said of The Queen: “Her wisdom and compassion have guided this country for over seven decades and her outstanding dignity and sound judgement have been recognised and appreciated by so many across the world.  She has inspired us and made us proud.

“In the history of our country, no other queen or king has served as long or as steadfastly and we unite in mourning the passing of a truly remarkable monarch.

“I join with the whole of Watford in sending our new King best wishes for a long and successful reign.”
