In the coming days, as thoughts turn to when the world lost an extraordinary leader – Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II – we will be both commemorating and celebrating her incredible personal investment in the Commonwealth and its young people. Queen Elizabeth II (then Princess Elizabeth) broadcasted a message where she dedicated her life to the service of the Commonwealth. We cannot say it better than she did: “I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and to the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.” 

We are eternally grateful for her unending belief in the young people of the Commonwealth. Her memory inspires us every single day and we look to the future with hope and optimism.

A year after the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we continue to remember her selfless service and how she personally directed the establishment of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust in her 90th year to support young changemakers building a better future for their communities. 

Through The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, we support young changemakers making a positive difference on climate, education, employment, and health & wellbeing in communities. We provide funding and practical advice and support, as well as a Network of over 850 young changemakers from across the 56 countries in the Commonwealth. 

We are proud to continue supporting the young leaders of the Commonwealth in her memory and helping them to make a real and positive impact in their communities. 

Please join us to continue Her Majesty’s legacy.
