Winchester & Chandler's Ford MP, Steve Brine, delivered a tribute to our late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the House of Commons today.
Mr Brine said; "Yesterday was one of the saddest days imaginable. We have known it was coming for a while now, but the sense of shock we feel today is palpable. This is a national moment but it feels intensely personal."
He spoke of the time he met the Queen, at Buckingham Palace, and the conversation they had and shared some other stories. He added; "We are so lucky to have had Queen Elizabeth II in our lives. We are changed by it.
"Thank you, Queen Elizabeth II; it has been a privilege. God save the King."
