British subjects gathered at the Anglican Church in Bucharest on Friday to mourn the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Elizabeth, the longest-serving British monarch ever, died „peacefully” on Thursday at Balmoral in Scotland.

The 102-year-old red brick Church of the Resurrection in the heart of Bucharest was built in the wake of World War I with funds raised by British-born Queen Marie, a relative of the late British monarch.

“It is her faith that we saw again and again in her Christmas messages calling us to unity, to love our neighbors, to not forget those in need” Fthr. Nevsky Everett told a handful of mourners who came to pay their respects.

The 96-year-old monarch was the Supreme Governor of the Church of England and a photo of the queen hangs on a church wall. Her son, King Charles III, will assume that role after he is crowned.

Also Friday, the British Embassy Bucharest opened a virtual condolence book to the public at for those wishing to pay respects.

It noted that Buckingham Palace announced the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-ever reigning monarch on Thursday, after a 70-year reign defined by “dignity, grace and an immense sense on duty. “

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Royal Family and the people of the UK, the Realms and the Commonwealth, in this time of immense grief,” a statement said.
