Official Mourning Announced In Lebanon For The Death Of Queen Elizabeth II


Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati issued a memorandum declaring an official 3-day mourning period for the death of the Queen of the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth II.

The mourning period in Lebanon starts today, September 9th until September 11th inclusive, as well as on the funeral day Sunday, September 18th, 2022.

The media is spread over administrations, public institutions, and municipalities, and regular programs on radio and television stations are modified to honor the mourning period.

The official notice read: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”

Queen Elizabeth II, the United Kingdom’s longest-serving monarch, died at Balmoral aged 96, after reigning for 70 years and 214 days, the longest recorded of any woman head of state in history.

The Queen was born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor, in Mayfair, London, on 21 April 1926 and came to the throne in 1952.

She was the Queen of the United Kingdom and Queen Regnant of 32 different sovereign states, including Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.  

She died peacefully on Thursday afternoon, September 8th, 2022, at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer.

Her son Charles III (born 1948) is now the King of the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth realms as of the time of the Queen’s death.
