DECLARATION BY HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN
His Honour the Acting Administrator directs the publication, for
general information, of the following Declaration by Her Majesty the
By the sudden death, of my dear Father I am called to assume the
duties and responsibility of Sovereignty. At this time of deep sorrow it is
a profound consolation to me to be assured of the sympathy which you and
all my peoples feel towards me, t- my Mother and Sister and to the other
Members of my family. My Father was our revered and beloved Head as
He was of the wider family of his subjects. The grief which his loss brings
is shared among us all. My heart is too full for me to say more to you
today than that I shall always work as my Father did throughout
this reign to uphold Constitutional Government and to advance the happi-
ness and prosperity of my peoples spread as they are all the world over. I
know that in my resolve to follow his shining example of service and
devotion I shall be inspired by the loyalty and affection of those whose
Queen I have been called to be and by the counsel of their elected Parlia-
I pray that GOD will help me to discharge worthily this heavy task that
has been laid upon me so early in my life. "
