This evening the members and staff of Optimum Advocates join the nation in mourning the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. None of us have a memory of anything other than the second Elizabethan era, and as such feel with great sadness, the loss felt by all of Her Majesty’s subjects, by others within the Commonwealth of Nations, and by the World at large. It is doubtful if any head of state, alive or dead, has ever offered such a constant figure of stability to so many, and this she did with persistent grace, dedication and humility. The thoughts of all of us are with her family who seamlessly carry on her legacy.
The seamless succession of the Monarchy is such that we have this evening amended the post-nominals of our Senior members to reflect that they are now His Majesty’s Counsel.
Long Live the King.
