Lisbon, 8 September 2022

Your Majesty,

It was with profound and genuine sadness and with immense sorrow that I learnt of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

At this time of grief and pain, on behalf of the Portuguese people and myself I send Your Majesty and the entire Royal Family, as well as to all Britons, my sincere condolences and my deepest sympathy on your loss.

I am confident that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will remain for all an example of courage, dedication, stability and an unwavering sense of public service, as she has been throughout her more than 96 years of life and 70 years on the throne.

For Portugal and all Portuguese, the visits that Queen Elizabeth II made to Portugal in 1957 and 1985 will remain in the memory of every one of us with unquestionable affection and appreciation. For me personally, I will never forget the honour of meeting her when I visited London in 2016.

Confident of the historic and unbreakable bonds of friendship which have united and will continue to unite Portugal and the United Kingdom, I renew my most heartfelt and sincere condolences and offer Your Majesty the assurances of my highest esteem and consideration.

Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa

President of the Portuguese Republic
