SINCE the passing of Her Majesty the Queen on Thursday 8th September, Robert Halfon, MP for Harlow and the villages has been in Westminster, representing his constituents at the official ceremonies and processes which mark the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the accession of King Charles III. These have included:

  • Laying flowers at Buckingham Palace on Friday 9th September.
  • Paying Tribute to Her Majesty in the House of Commons on Saturday 10th September.
  • Attending the Evensong Service of Remembrance in St Margaret’s Church on Sunday 11th September.
  • Attending the Presentation of Humble Addresses to His Majesty the King in Westminster Hall on Monday 12th September.

Speaking about the events, Robert Halfon said:

“I have been incredibly honoured and proud to represent Harlow and the villages of Hastingwood, Matching, Nazeing, Roydon and Sheering in paying tribute to Her Majesty the Queen over the past fews days. 

“Today’s Humble Address in Westminster Hall was followed by His Majesty’s first speech to Parliament. Quoting Shakespeare, He spoke of his “beloved mother”, saying, “She was a “pattern to all princes living”.” His words demonstrated just how important our monarchy is, and the fundamental values of constitutional democracy which we are privileged to have in this county.

“Despite the sadness we all feel, and the sombre nature of these events, it has been an incredible moment in my life, and one which I will never forget. The pageantry we have all witnessed has been very special and it will be a memory I will treasure forever. I will be attending the Lying in State of Her Majesty in the coming days to pay my respects, and those of Harlow residents, to the late Queen.”
