Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 1926 - 2022

The Heraldry Society is deeply saddened by the news of the passing of our Sovereign Lady, Queen Elizabeth II, at Balmoral Castle on the 8th September, 2022.

Her Majesty's over 70 years of service as our Queen has been inspirational and her steadfast hand at the helm of this country, and her other realms, will be much missed. Truely the second Elizabethan Age has passed and the world is the poorer for it.

Our deepest sympathies are with HM King Charles III and the members of the Royal Family.
