Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth
1926 - 2022
Provost of Aberdeenshire, Judy Whyte, said: "It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of Her Majesty The Queen.
"The nation has lost its greatest ambassador, and throughout her reign she was an impeccable servant to the United Kingdom and the wider Commonwealth.
"She held Aberdeenshire very dear to her heart, and it is that relationship which will be remembered most fondly. It is fitting that she spent her final days on the Balmoral Estate, somewhere which was so special to her.
"Our thoughts are with her family at this sad time."
