A Statement on the Passing of Her Majesty The Queen

Friday, 9 September 2022

On behalf of the Australian British Chamber of Commerce, we express our deepest condolences to the Royal Family on the passing of Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth and Defender of the Faith.

Throughout her seven decades of service to the United Kingdom and Australia as our Sovereign, The Queen gave selfless service to many millions not only in our own countries, but also to her other Realms, and Territories, the Commonwealth and to the World, as an enduring symbol of leadership, strength and courage, but also of compassion and empathy.

The Queen has been a steadfast and faithful servant of her people. Her counsel was sought by leaders of many countries and we are grateful for her role in shaping the world in which we live, as our strength and stay through all these years. It is with great sadness that we mourn her passing. We honour and celebrate her unwavering service, living up to the words from her twenty-first birthday that:

“I declare before you that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service, and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong”.

David McCredie AM OBE

Chief Executive Officer

Australian British Chamber of Commerce
