The death of our Patron Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

We would like to express our deepest sadness and condolences at the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Ruling for longer than any Monarch in British history, her lifelong devotion and commitment to public service as Sovereign for the UK and Commonwealth will never be forgotten.

Having just celebrated her Platinum Jubilee earlier this year, the public were reminded of her selfless commitment to her role as both a unifying and steadfast figurehead throughout seven decades of change.

Her Majesty the Queen was the longest serving patron of RICS, and we had the privilege of welcoming her to the RICS London Headquarters to mark our 150-year celebration in 2018. During her visit, the Queen toured the building and met members of the profession – a truly momentous occasion for all involved. Her presence on this day and her unwavering commitment to her RICS patronage will remain a special and important part of our history.

Our heartfelt sympathies lie with the Royal Family at this time of mourning.
