It is with profound sorrow that the Commonwealth Games Federation of Malaysia (CGA Malaysia) learnt of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Patron of the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF), on Thursday, 8th September 2022, at the age of 96.
Her Majesty The Queen, the longest reigning British Monarch, had united the Commonwealth nations with her extraordinary dedication and services throughout her long life and reign.
