Tributes have been pouring in for the remarkable Queen from all over the world after the sad news of her passing away. 

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's death has been felt greatly by many Kiwis and the rest of the world.

Councils across the country are flying flags at half mast and putting out their own condolence books to pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth. 

You may wish to pay respect to the Queen and send a message of condolence to the Royal family on the book of condolences. You can either do it in person or online. 

Many city councils have been taking steps to honour the Queen by placing condolence books either in the libraries or the main council buildings. You can visit your local council's website or social media for more information on where to go to pay respects. 

If there are no available books of condolences in your area or you'd rather do it online, then you can simply head to the royal family's official website - royal.uk.

They have opened a form on their webpage for anyone in the world to send the family condolences during this tough time. 

This is how the form looks.

Once you're on the website, scroll down and you can either click on 'Book of Condolence' or 'Send a message of condolence'. After you click on one of them, it will then open a form for you to fill.

A selection of these messages will be passed onto members of the Royal family and may be held in the Royal Archives for posterity according to the website.
