The King of Morocco, Mohamed VI, has sent a message of condolences to King Charles III and the British royal family on the death of his mother, Elizabeth II, who has been a “symbol of the greatness” of the United Kingdom after 70 years of reign.
“It is with deep sadness and great regret that I have learned the news of the passing of your mother, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. May she rest in peace,” he said in a statement, adding that this “exceptional” monarch has achieved “much progress and prosperity” and has gained great national and international prominence.
In this way, King Mohammed VI has underlined “the qualities and merits” of Elizabeth II, whom he has described as “illustrious”, while stressing that, due to her death, Morocco has lost a “special and deeply respected friend”, as reported by MAP news agency.
Faced with a “tragic” loss, Mohammed VI has underlined the “long-standing friendship” that both monarchies, the British and the Alawite, have boosted thanks to the figure of Queen Elizabeth II, who died Thursday after 70 years and 214 days of reign, one of the longest in history and the longest in the United Kingdom.
