Shaftesbury Rotary Club’s Statement of Condolence on the Passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, whose dedication to humanitarian causes and unwavering commitment to peace and the environment deeply inspired Rotary members around the world, especially those in the Commonwealth countries. The Queen was a supporter of Rotary’s polio eradication and humanitarian missions. She received the Rotary International Award of Honor, the organization’s highest recognition, in December 2013 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of her coronation. Her late husband, Prince Philip, was an honorary member of the Rotary clubs of Kings Lynn, Windsor & Eton, Windsor St. George and Edinburgh.
We join the international community in offering our condolences to the Royal Family and His Majesty King Charles III.

– Shaftesbury Rotary Club President David Britton
