Western Australians join with others around the world in remembering Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The longest reigning Monarch of the Commonwealth, Her Majesty dedicated her life to service in the role for more than 70 years.

The Queen visited Western Australia on seven occasions, with itineraries extending north to Kununurra, and as far south as Albany.

Many Western Australians will recall with fondness the last visit made in 2011, during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Perth.  More than 100,000 people attended a barbeque on the Swan River for Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.

The Queen’s dedicated commitment and life-long service to The Crown, her country and the Commonwealth will not be forgotten. A lasting legacy and fond memories that will remain in the hearts of Western Australians for many years to come.

Condolence Books are currently open at Government House for the public to sign, further information can be found on the Government House website. Alternatively, online messages of condolence can be submitted via the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s website
