Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says the late Queen’s legacy in ensuring the Commonwealth was established on equal partnerships of countries and races will always be remembered.

He made the comments as he joined world leaders and thousands of mourners at Westminster Hall last night to pay his respect, on behalf of the Fijian people and the nation, to Her Majesty, the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Bainimarama later signed the official condolence book at Lancaster House.
