Our statement on the passing of Her Majesty the Queen

HRH The Queen

We are saddened to learn of Her Majesty’s death. We express our deepest condolences to her immediate family, and also recognise the many achievements of a long and dignified reign marked by its devotion to duty and public service.

For me this is a moment to reflect anew on the impact of change. The vast majority of people in the United Kingdom, myself included, have never known another UK Head of State. In an era that has seen accelerating economic, political and social change globally, The Queen represented a fixture of consistency and was a source of assurance to many.
