ROYAL CONDOLENCES

Queen Elizabeth had already paid tribute to the late President on Saturday. She shared her condolences with the American People through a statement posted on the Royal Family's official website.

According to the Queen, Bush was a "great friend and ally of the United Kingdom," which was why it was with great sadness that she learned of his passing.

A HERO WORTHY OF HIGH HONORS

The monarch described the 94-year-old as a patriot, who not only served his country "with honor and distinction" while in Office but also during World War II as a Navy aviator.

Bush became the 12th President to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, with the last Presidential funeral having taken place in 2006 when former President Gerald Ford died of arteriosclerotic cerebrovascular disease and diffuse arteriosclerosis.
