The Royal Historical Society of Queensland joins with all members of the Commonwealth in mourning the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and expresses our sincere condolences to King Charles III and all members of the Royal Family.

Her Majesty achieved remarkable milestones of being both the longest-serving and the oldest British monarch in history.

We acknowledge her selfless dedication to duty and faithful service that has inspired generations of people over the past 70 years.

Queen Elizabeth II is the only reigning monarch most Australians have known and her long and noble service will ever be remembered.

In February 1959 the prefix “Royal” was added to our Society’s name following Royal approval.
