College Statement on the Passing of Queen Elizabeth II

12 Sep 2022

“The whole community of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow notes with sadness the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. We extend our condolences to King Charles III, the wider Royal Family and all who knew her well. 

Mike McKirdy, President of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow said:

“The whole community of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow notes with sadness the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. We extend our condolences to King Charles III, the wider Royal Family and all who knew her well. 

As Queen Elizabeth II once astutely observed, grief is the price we pay for love, and the grief felt now throughout the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and indeed the world is a tribute to the great regard and affection in which she was held by so many.

As we reflect on her late Majesty’s selfless devotion to duty, we can draw inspiration from a life so well lived and recall her auspicious role in granting our change of title to Royal College in 1962 and also her happy visit in 1999 to mark College’s 400th anniversary.”
