Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

All Members of the Royal Life Saving Society wish to express deepest sympathy on the passing of our Patron, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Her Majesty assumed the role of Royal Life Saving Society Patron on 3 June 1952 following the death of her father, King George VI.
The origins of the Royal Family’s connection to the Royal Life Saving Society can be traced to the founding of the Society in 1891 with King Edward VII, King George V and King George VI having accepted the role of Patron.
Her Majesty held several Society awards including was Elementary and Intermediate Certificates and was the first young person in the Commonwealth to achieve the Society’s Junior Respiration Award.
The Society is grateful to Her Majesty for her unwavering support to the Royal Life Saving Society and the cause of drowning prevention over 70 years.
In addition, Royal Life Saving Society Member Branches appreciate the support of Her Majesty’s Vice Regal representatives throughout the Commonwealth.
