The Union Flag is flying at half-mast over Brent Civic Centre following news of the death of Her Majesty The Queen.
It will remain lowered, as a mark of respect, until after her state funeral.
It follows a message issued by Buckingham Palace today (8 September) confirming the death of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, at the age of 96.
Tributes have been paid to the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee as Queen Elizabeth ll marked 70 years on the throne this summer.
The Mayor of Brent, Councillor Abdi Aden, said:
“It is with great sadness that I learnt of the death of Her Majesty The Queen.
“Queen Elizabeth II ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history and will always be remembered for her sense of duty and devotion to a life of service of the country and Commonwealth.
“Queen Elizabeth II dedicated much of her 70-year reign to public and voluntary service advocating for a wide range of issues.
“Over the Platinum Jubilee weekend, thousands of Brent residents held more than 50 street parties across the borough as our communities from all across the world came together to honour her 70 years of service.
“Her steadfast leadership has carried us all through times of enormous change and given the length of her service, Her Majesty is the only Monarch many of us have ever known.
“On behalf of Brent Council and the London Borough of Brent, I would like to offer my deepest sympathies to the Royal Family, but also gratitude, to Her Majesty The Queen for all she did for our country. May she rest in peace.”
Cllr Aden is sending a formal message of sympathy to Buckingham Palace on behalf of all the residents of the borough of Brent.
The Mayor of Brent will read a proclamation at 4pm on the steps of Wembley Stadium at the top of Olympic Way on Sunday (11 September) which residents are welcome to attend.
