Statement from Kate Shaw on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Thursday 8th September 2022

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. We join the nation in mourning a global icon who dedicated her life to her country, the Commonwealth and the wider world.

For 70 years, The Queen has been the UK’s anchor and guiding light; a beloved figurehead to millions. 

The world changed immensely during her reign, but her sense of duty, stoicism and devotion to public service never wavered, not even through the darkest times. As a company, we believe a major part of her legacy is the work she did to build and strengthen ties with other countries, which contributed significantly to smooth international relations. We are in no doubt that our own success is due in no small part to her work in this area.

Our longest-reigning monarch, The Queen will live on in our hearts and the history books as a monarch who gave everything to her country. For that, we will forever be grateful.
