WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) today released a statement after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the world’s longest-serving Monarch.
“For 70 years, the Queen has demonstrated civility, class, and compassion for all,” said Dr. Cassidy. “My condolences to the royal family, the United Kingdom, and the Commonwealth. Her loss is immense, but her legacy is even greater.”
Since Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne in 1952, 14 different U.S. Presidents have held office. The Queen celebrated her Platinum Jubilee earlier this year, marking 70 years on the throne. She is the first monarch to reach the milestone.
