Her Majesty, who reigned 70 years, died at Balmoral at the age of 96.

Putin joined politicians, religious figures and celebrities from around the world who have paid tribute to her.

In his message, he said the Queen “rightfully enjoyed the love and respect of her subjects, as well as authority on the world stage.”

“I wish you courage and perseverance in the face of this serious, irreparable loss,” Putin said.

“May I ask you to extend my sincere condolences and support to the members of the Royal Family and to all the people of Great Britain.”

Ordinary Russians have also laid flowers in memory of the Queen outside the British Embassy in Moscow.

The Queen met Vladimir Putin at Buckingham Palace when he paid a state visit to Britain in 2003.

He made the Queen wait 14 minutes for him to arrive at the palace – prompting Her Majesty to subtly attack him later.

According to then Home Secretary David Blunkett, his guide dog reacted defensively to Putin during the visit.

“The only time I met Vladimir Putin was on an official visit in 2003 and my dog ​​at the time was barking very loudly,” he told the BBC.

“I apologized to the Queen who was obviously the hostess. I don’t think I’m giving anything away by saying, ‘I’m sorry, Your Majesty, about the dog barking.’

She said, ‘Dogs have interesting instincts, don’t they?’”


The death of the Queen comes as…


Her Majesty and the Kremlin strongman were due to meet again in June 2014 during a D-Day commemoration event in France.

The event happened just months after King Charles allegedly compared the regime to that of Nazi Germany.

After a group photo with world leaders, the Queen was helped down a flight of stairs by then-US President Barack Obama and New Zealand Governor-General Jerry Mateparae.

But Putin, who was standing next to her and able to help, looked the other way.

The Queen’s funeral is set to take place 10 days after her death, prompting emotional crowds to gather outside the royal sites.

Charles, who became king after the death of his mother, paid tribute to his “much beloved mother” and Britain’s “esteemed sovereign”.

He said: “We deeply mourn the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a well-loved mother.

“I know their loss will be deeply felt across the land, in the rich and in the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”

President Joe Biden spoke of the Queen as a “source of comfort and pride” when he released a lengthy statement on her life.

He said: “Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was more than a monarch. She defined an era.

“In a world of constant change, she has been a constant presence and a source of comfort and pride for generations of Britons, including many who have never known her country without her.

“A sustained admiration for Queen Elizabeth II united people across the Commonwealth.

“The seven decades of her storied reign witnessed an age of unprecedented human progress and the advancement of human dignity.

“She was the first British monarch to whom people around the world could feel a personal and immediate connection

“Whether they heard her on the radio as a young princess addressing the children of the UK, or gathered around their TVs at her coronation, or saw her final Christmas speech or her platinum anniversary on their phones.

“And she, in turn, has dedicated her whole life to her ministry.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy tweeted: “It is with deep sadness that we learned of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“On behalf of the people, we send our sincere condolences to the @RoyalFamily, the whole of the UK and the Commonwealth for this irreparable loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.”

French President Emmanuel Macros paid tribute to the Queen as “Friend of France”.

“Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II embodied the continuity and unity of the British nation for over 70 years,” he said.

“I remember her as a friend of France, a kind-hearted queen who made a lasting impression on her country and her century.”

Former American President Barack Obama recalled the time he met the Queen as he looked back on her life.

He said in a statement: “Michelle and I were fortunate to know Her Majesty and she meant a great deal to us.

“Back when we were just beginning to navigate life as President and First Lady, she welcomed us onto the world stage with open arms and extraordinary generosity.

“We have always been struck by her warmth, her ability to put people at ease, and how she brought her considerable sense of humor and charm to moments of pomp and circumstance.”

Obama also referenced the Queen’s most memorable and joyful moments as monarch, including her comical role at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics and the stirring messages of inspiration she delivered at the start of the pandemic.

Obama’s successor Donald Trump also spoke about the Queen after her death and insisted that there was “no one like her”!

Trump, who met the Queen during his presidency, wrote on his social media platform Truth: “Melania and I are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“Together with our family and fellow Americans, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the royal family and people of the United Kingdom at this time of great sadness and grief.

“Melania and I will always cherish our time together with the Queen and will never forget Her Majesty’s generous friendship, great wisdom and wonderful sense of humour.
“What a magnificent and beautiful woman she was – there was no one like her!”

“She was an inspiring presence, guiding the country through some of our greatest and darkest moments with grace, grace and a genuine, caring warmth.

“Queen Elizabeth has been a huge part of my life from childhood to this day and I will miss her dearly.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was also part of the mourning following the news.

He said: “It is with a heavy heart that we learn of the death of Canada’s longest-reigning sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“She was a constant presence in our lives – and her service to Canadians will forever remain an important part of our country’s history.

“As we look back on her life and decades of reign, Her Majesty’s wisdom, compassion and warmth will always be remembered and cherished by Canadians.

“Our thoughts are with the members of the royal family at this most difficult time.”
