Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022)

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Rugby School is deeply saddened by the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

We offer our sincere condolences to His Majesty The King and The Queen Consort and The Royal Family. The Rugby School community mourn alongside the Nation and the Commonwealth.

Her Majesty made a personal connection with Rugby School when she visited in 1967 to mark our 400th Anniversary.  Our homepage image shows the Queen receiving the key to the Queen’s Gates during that visit.
