UK announces plans for Queen Elizabeth II tribute in 2026

Published

on

The British government has unveiled its early plans to create a permanent memorial in honour of Queen Elizabeth II, the nation’s longest-reigning monarch, who passed away last September at the age of 96 after an extraordinary 70-year reign.

This “fitting tribute” is slated to be unveiled in 2026, coinciding with what would have been her 100th birthday.

It will be the first anniversary of the Queen’s death on September 8.

The responsibility of shaping this memorial and legacy program will rest with the Queen Elizabeth Memorial Committee, a body jointly supported by the British Government and the Royal Household.

Lord Robin Janvrin, the late Queen’s former private secretary, has been appointed as its chairman.

The committee, operating independently, will explore various proposals and seek input from the British public.

This initiative aims to celebrate the Queen’s lifelong dedication to public service and the charitable causes she championed.

Lord Janvrin, who served at Buckingham Palace in different capacities from 1987 to 2007, expressed the honour he feels in taking on this role and acknowledged the challenge of capturing the late monarch’s remarkable contributions for future generations.

To ensure a comprehensive and thoughtful approach, the committee will include prominent figures from the royal, political, and expert communities.

Their collaborative efforts will lead to recommendations presented to King Charles, the heir to the throne, and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

The government has pledged its support for these proposals and will explore funding options for the memorial project.

Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden emphasised Queen Elizabeth II’s historic reign and her profound commitment to public service, underscoring the significance of this memorial in preserving her legacy.
