Statement on the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
The Queen was a former patron of the ICE.

The Institution is deeply saddened to hear of the death of Her Majesty the Queen. Our thoughts are with her children and family at this extremely difficult time.

The Queen became Patron of the Institution upon her ascent to the throne in 1952 until 2017 when she stepped back from a number of patronages.

She visited our headquarters at One Great George Street on several occasions. We are immensely grateful for her sustained support, and that of her family.

Her Majesty has been a reassuring constant in a fast-changing world where most of us have known her as our only sovereign. I know I speak for many thousands of civil engineers around the world when I pay tribute to her extraordinary contribution.

She will be greatly missed.

  • Ed McCann, Senior Director at Expedition Engineering
