Leave your tributes and light a candle for the Queen in our book of condolence

The Daily Star invites you to pay your respects to Her Majesty by leaving a message and lighting a candle.

Queen Elizabeth II passed away peacefully at Balmoral Castle with the nation, commonwealth and world coming to a grinding halt as it comes to terms with her loss.

The Queen reigned for more than 70 years and her time on the throne saw many changes.

A total of 15 Prime Ministers served under her. The internet and penicillin were invented. The Soviet Union fell as the Cold War ended, Covid decimated the global population and Russia invaded Ukraine.

Through all the changes, she has been a constant. An unflinching, steadfast rock and the constitutional ruler of the UK through thick and thin – she has been on the throne for the majority of the lives for most people who are alive today.

Many may not yet have come to terms with the news and others are unlikely to have worked out what her reign really meant to them.

Because of this, we invite you to pay your tributes in this online book of condolence and to light a virtual candle in her memory.

Britain's longest-reigning monarch, she leapfrogged her great grandmother Queen Victoria having taken over from her father, King George VI in 1952.

Her famous coronation was held at Westminster Abbey on June 2, 1953 and she used her platform to work for the realm.

She travelled the world visiting over 300 countries, held audiences with national leaders and inspired generations with her diligence and service.

Her beloved husband, Prince Philip, was by her side for over 70 years only passing away himself in April 2021 at the age of 99.
