Following the death of the British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing, says that a condolence register will be opened at the British High Commission from Sept. 12.

 

Laing made this known on her official twitter handle, @catrionalaing, on Friday, while dropping an online link for those who wish to express their condolences online.

 

“We will open a condolence book at our High Commission Office in the Central Business District area of Abuja from 12th to 16th September, and on 19th September, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

 

“Those wishing to express their condolences can do so in person here at royal.uk/send-message.

 

“A condolence book in Lagos will be available on invitation only,” Laing stated,

 

Recall that Queen Elizabeth II, who was the oldest and longest serving monarch of United Kingdom,  died on Sept. 8 at the age of 96 at the Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

 

Balmoral Castle was said to be the Queen’s favourite residence where she spent her time between August and September every year.

 

The Queen just appointed the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Liz Truss, just two days before her death.
