Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II

The RSA is deeply saddened to hear of the death of Her Majesty The Queen, our Patron.

The Queen’s involvement with the RSA began when she became our President in 1947. She then became our Patron following her coronation in 1953. There is no one with a longer association with the RSA. We would like to extend our enduring thanks for her service to the RSA, the country and the Commonwealth.
