Politicians and organisations in Cyprus may have been silent following the death of Queen Elizabeth but the UK diaspora issued it condolences.

In a letter to King Charles, the president of the National Federation of Cypriots in the UK Christos Karaolis, expressed “deep sorrow” for the loss of Queen Elizabeth.

Karaolis expressed thanks for the queen’s service and her dedication to the UK and the Commonwealth throughout her life and noted that Queen Elizabeth had welcomed all of presidents of the Republic throughout her 70-year reign from President Makarios down to President Nicos Anastasiades.

She was “a model of stability and a beacon of leadership in the shared history of the two countries,” the letter said.

It also highlighted the new king’s relationship with Cyprus, referring to a reception in honour of Cyprus hosted by the then Prince of Wales in 2019.

Reference was also made to the planned 2020 visit of Charles to Cyprus, which was postponed due to the pandemic.
