Cllr. Robert Wood, Mayor of Neath Port Talbot said:

“I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Her Majesty. I know that many people have never known life without the Queen as our sovereign, and that many will feel a personal sense of grief at this time, as do I.

Throughout her long reign, she displayed a remarkable sense of duty and a devotion to her people that never faltered.

On behalf of all the people of Neath Port Talbot I extend my deepest and most sincere condolences to members of the Royal Family.”

“For more than seven decades Her Majesty, The Queen served this country and the Commonwealth with dignity, grace and untiring devotion. This is a time of great sorrow and her loss will be felt, not just here in the United Kingdom, but all over the World.

As a mark of respect, flags at civic buildings throughout the county borough will be flown at half-mast. Books of condolence will be opened at the civic centres in Port Talbot and Neath, and at Pontardawe Library.”
