I hope in the years to come everyone will be able to take pride in how they responded to this challenge.
(as Queen of the United Kingdom) - April 20202
You need to learn to stand up for yourself... and sometimes, pardon my language, kick some ass.
In remembering the appalling suffering of war on both sides, we recognise how precious is the peace we have built in Europe since 1945.
Grief is the price we pay for love.
No one who knew Diana will ever forget her. Millions of others who never met her, but felt they knew her, will remember her.
The lessons from the peace process are clear; whatever life throws at us, our individual responses will be all the stronger for working together and sharing the load.
I have to be seen to be believed.
I know of no single formula for success. But over the years I have observed that some attributes of leadership are universal and are often about finding ways of encouraging people to combine their efforts, their talents, their insights, their enthusiasm and their inspiration to work together.
First, I want to pay tribute to Diana myself. She was an exceptional and gifted human being. In good times and bad, she never lost her capacity to smile and laugh, nor to inspire others with her warmth and kindness. I admired and respected her - for her energy and commitment to others, and especially for her devotion to her two boys.
To what greater inspiration and counsel can we turn than to the imperishable truth to be found in this treasure house, the Bible?

We mourn the death of Queen Elizabeth II. She was a role model and inspiration for millions, also here in Germany. Her commitment to German-British reconciliation after the horrors of World War II will remain unforgotten. She will be missed.
Olaf Scholz - September 2022
I am told that the last three speakers here [Westminster Hall] have been the Pope, her Majesty the Queen and Nelson Mandela. Which is either a very high bar or the beginning of a very funny joke.
