The British government has announced initial plans to build a memorial to Queen Elizabeth II, who died last year. It is said to be unveiled in 2026, the year of her 100th birthday.
The independent Queen Elizabeth Committee is to review and make recommendations for the memorial to the late Queen Elizabeth II and a so-called national legacy program, the Cabinet Office, the UK’s central government agency, said on Sunday.
Committee to work out “appropriate recognition” for Queen Elizabeth II
The new body will be chaired by former Queen’s Private Secretary Robin Janvrin. The Member of the British House of Lords called the appointment “an honour”. It will be a “unique challenge to capture the extraordinary contribution” of the late monarch “to our national life during her very long reign for future generations,” Janvrin said.
High-ranking members of the royal family, politicians and experts are to be appointed as members of the committee. The panel will then make its recommendations to King Charles III. and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. Elizabeth II died last September at the age of 96 after 70 years on the British throne.
