Members of BLACK SABATH have paid their tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-serving monarch, who died today (Thursday, September 8) at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. The Queen, who was 96 years old, reigned for 70 years.
Buckingham Palace released a statement today from His Majesty The King, in which he reflected on the passing of his mother.
“The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family,” King Charles said. “We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms, and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”
He added, “During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which The Queen was so widely held.”
Ozzy Osbourne commented on Queen’s passing: “I mourn with my country the passing of our greatest Queen. With a heavy heart I say it’s devastating the thought of England without Queen Elizabeth II.”
Geezer Butler shared: “Sad to hear of The Queen passing. I remember the street celebrations when she was crowned Queen. Always a staple of growing up in England. GSTQ- RIP.”
Sharon Osbourne paid tribute as well, writing: “Rest In Peace Queen Elizabeth ll, the longest reigning monarch. The embodiment of strength and dignity, upholding and performing her vow to The United Kingdom. Unwavering. May you be at peace beside His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburg. Long Live The King.”
