Apple CEO Tim Cook commemorates Queen Elizabeth II’s devotion to the people of the UK and the Commonwealth
Apple always pays a tribute to its late founder Steve Jobs with a Homepage takeover on his death anniversary. The company has paid respect to the late Queen Elizabeth II with the same gesture.
The company’s CEO Tim Cook remembered Queen’s work for her people in a tweet. He wrote that:
“There is nothing more noble than to devote your life to the service of others. We stand with the people of the UK and Commonwealth in honoring the life and dedication to duty of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. May she rest in peace.”
Born on April 21, 1926, the Queen took the throne in 1952 and saw the Kingdom’s “post-war austerity, the transition from empire to Commonwealth, the end of the Cold War, and the UK’s entry into – and withdrawal from – the European Union.”
Her eldest son King Charles III has taken the throne and Prince William and Princess Catherine are now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Cornwall. According to the BBC, King Charles III said:
Her son King Charles III said the death of his beloved mother was a “moment of great sadness” for him and his family and that her loss would be “deeply felt” around the world.
He said: “We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother.
“I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”
During the coming period of mourning, he said he and his family would be “comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which the Queen was so widely held”.
