Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II
The coming days will be filled with royal protocol and ceremony, including around ten days of official mourning during which all official government business will be paused. On a parochial level this will affect news releases and job recruitment. For CJS the office will remain open, with the exception of the day of the funeral which will be an official 'holiday', and we will continue to provide the service you've come to expect and share the information that comes our way. Service and duty was, of course, what the Queen promised in her first broadcast in 1952, continuing to carry out those Sovereign duties until her final hours.
We thank her for her service over the 70 years of her reign and offer our condolences to the whole Royal Family.
