Elizabeth II and the Anglican Communion
Elizabeth II was Head of State in 15 nations other than the UK, many of which were territories served by provinces in the Anglican Communion.
The Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, regarded Elizabeth II as a faithful Christian.
"In Her Late Majesty’s life we saw what it means to receive the gift of life we have been given by God and – through patient, humble, selfless service – share it as a gift to others."
