The Royal Variety Charity is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen.
Her Majesty was Patron of the Royal Variety Charity for 70 years, taking on this duty after the death of His Majesty King George VI in 1952.
The Queen was an enthusiastic supporter of our charity, and we were honoured to have Her Majesty's presence at 39 Royal Variety Performances, the first in 1945 and the final one in the Diamond Jubilee year of 2012.
The Royal Variety Charity sends its sincere condolences to His Majesty The King and the entire Royal Family.
