Queen Elizabeth II,  1926-2022

9 September 2022 - CISL Director and CEO, Clare Shine, said: “We are deeply saddened by the death of Her Majesty The Queen. Throughout her long reign she provided wise and principled leadership that was felt around the world, far beyond the borders of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. Her humility, her warmth and her commitment to service and community have been a beacon in good times and bad. Our heartfelt sympathy and thoughts are with His Majesty King Charles III and the Royal Family.”  

Vice-Chancellor Professor Stephen J Toope said: “This news brings great sorrow for the United Kingdom as a whole, for the Commonwealth, and most particularly for members of the Royal Family, to whom we extend our heartfelt condolences. Her Majesty The Queen's reign defined the United Kingdom of the 20th and early 21st centuries. Her Majesty’s devotion to public service and the common good, her dignity, her sense of duty and her strong moral compass, will always be an inspiration.”
