Her burial service is booked to be held at Westminster Nunnery on Monday, September 19.

In the letter from the Manhyia Royal residence, Head of Staff Kofi Badu conveyed the most profound sympathies of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, to High Chief Harriet Thompson.

It noticed how the late sovereign committed herself to turn into a wellspring of trust and motivation in "the haziest of times".

"Through seven long many years, in an age of the most horrible difficulties and amazing open doors, she has worn the crown of sovereign with supreme respect, unfailing effortlessness, honesty and determination," the letter noted.

It further saw that the change of the English Domain from majestic disunity to the Region of free countries is proof of the benevolent acts of Sovereign Elizabeth II.

"The Asante Realm has been especially aware of the way that it was during her rule that the scars of previous history were at last overlaid by another relationship in view of shared regard and companionship," the letter brought up, adding that three Lords of Asante were gotten by the sovereign while she likewise ensured she visited Kumasi with different individuals from the Illustrious family on each event she was in Ghana.

"Working together with the remainder of Ghana and the large numbers across the Province of countries, the Asante Realm grieves with the Regal family over the deficiency of this invulnerable stronghold."
