The Deputy Prime Minister has announced that Lord Janvrin, the former Private Secretary to Queen Elizabeth II, has been appointed Chair of the new Queen Elizabeth Memorial Committee.

The Queen Elizabeth Memorial Committee will consider and recommend proposals for a permanent memorial to Queen Elizabeth II and a national legacy program. This will be jointly supported by the government and the Royal Household.

The plans are set to be unveiled in 2026 to coincide with what would have been Queen Elizabeth II’s 100th birthday.

Commenting on his appointment, Lord Janvrin said, “It is an honour to be asked to chair the Queen Elizabeth Memorial Committee. It will be a unique challenge to try to capture for future generations Her Late Majesty’s extraordinary contribution to our national life throughout her very long reign.”

Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden said, “Queen Elizabeth II was our longest reigning Monarch and greatest public servant. Lord Janvrin will now begin the important work of designing a fitting tribute to her legacy of service to our nation and the Commonwealth.”
