Statement on Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

8th September 2022

It is with great sadness that the Woolf Institute learns of the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. As Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England, Her Majesty took an interest in all faith communities, regularly meeting religious and community leaders, encouraging dialogue and understanding.

Her Majesty led the country and the Commonwealth in many ways, not least in fostering interfaith dialogue and tolerance.

The Institute has been honoured to have collaborated closely with these eminent leaders over the years. Our thoughts are especially with our Patron, Her Royal Highness Princess Anne and all the Royal Family.

May Her Majesty's memory be for a blessing.
