It was with great sorrow that I received notification today from Buckingham Palace that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II died on 8 September at Balmoral.
Ka kotahi atu te rerenga o te Kotuku ki tona taunga, ko te Atua e kiia nei: “Haere mai ki ahau koutou e taimaha ana, ā, māku ano koutou e whakaokioki”.
Ko te atua tōku piringa.
Rau rangatira mā, e kui mā, e koro mā, e huihui nei, tēnei aku mihi māhana ki a koutou. Kia ora tātou katoa.
Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen – warm greetings to you all. I’d like to specifically acknowledge:
