Prince Harry and Meghan snub UK return due to feud with Princess Kate

Plans for a permanent memorial to Queen Elizabeth II will be unveiled in 2026, to coincide with what would have been her 100th birthday, the government has said.

The Cabinet Office said Robin Janvrin, Elizabeth’s former private secretary, has been appointed as chairman of the Queen Elizabeth memorial committee to consider how to appropriately honour the late monarch, who died last September after 70 years on the throne.

The Queen was spending her annual summer holiday at her beloved Balmoral in Scotland, where she passed away on September 8 aged 96.

Mr Janvrin and other committee officials will take into account Her Majesty’s lifetime of public service and royal duty, as well as the causes she supported, with plans for a national legacy programme to be created in her name.

Mr Janvrin said: “It will be a unique challenge to try to capture for future generations Her Late Majesty’s extraordinary contribution to our national life throughout her very long reign.”
