“It is a time to mourn but also a time to remember all she has done and be grateful for Her Majesty’s outstanding public service. She was, always, the best of British, a Monarch who loved the time she spent in our county and I know we will miss her greatly.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the Royal Family at this sad time.”
County council chairman, Councillor Karen Vincent, said: “This is a very sad day and Norfolk County Council joins in the nation’s mourning for Her Majesty The Queen.
