HM The Queen

It is with deepest regret that the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) pays tribute to Her Majesty The Queen, on the announcement of her passing by Buckingham Palace.

Her Majesty has given unparalleled service to the Nation and the Commonwealth throughout her long life and reign. Not least in her role as Head of State, but also to the Armed Forces, the Church of England, through Her many patronages and personal interests and as an enduring figurehead to people of the United Kingdom. News of Her passing will be met with grief and sadness by millions around the world.

The Public Relations profession was recognised through the award of a Royal Charter, signed by Her Majesty in Privy Council, in 2005. The CIPR President will shortly send a message of condolence on behalf of members and staff.
