The letter has been sent to the King's Private Secretary and reads:

We ask that you extend our deepest condolences to the new Sovereign and all members of the Royal Family, at this time of national mourning and personal loss.

Her Majesty offered a beacon of public service, dedication to others, and selflessness that shone as an example to us all. She will continue to inspire us long beyond her passing.

We remember fondly both her visit to Great Yarmouth in 1985, and that of the new Sovereign in 2012, and as a county we have been honoured by the Royal Family's many visits to Norfolk. We hope that at this most difficult time, drawing on these memories will provide strength and comfort to you, as they do to us.

The Mayor has also signed a civic Book of Condolence at the Town Hall, which is available for members of the public wishing to pay their respects.

The book will be open for signing in the building's atrium daily between 10am and 4pm until and including the day before the late Queen's funeral.

An online book of condolence is available on the Royal Family's website at
