The Manhyia Palace in the Asante region has expressed its condolences to the people of the United Kingdom over the death of their monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.
The Queen died on Thursday, 8 September 2022, at theBalmoral Castle, her estate in the Scottish Highlands
She was 96.
She was the longest reigning British Monarch who reigned for 70 years.
In a letter of condolence addressed to the British High Commission in Ghana, the palace noted that the historic transformation of the British empire from imperial discord to the Commonwealth of free nations bound in mutual friendship by a commitment to shared values, bears the delicate imprint of the much-loved matriarch.
The letter said the Asante kingdom has been particularly conscious of the fact that it was during her reign that the scars of past history were finally overlaid by a new relationship based upon mutual respect and friendship.
The Queen while alive received three Kings from the Asante kingdom while other members of the royal family also visited the Manhyia Palace.
