Everyone at City & Guilds and EAL would like to express their deepest condolences to The Royal Family at this difficult time. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was an inspiration to us all and the finest example of public service, personal dedication and steadfastness that we have known. City & Guilds is proud to be a Royal Chartered organisation we are infinitely grateful for the support we, and many of our learners, have enjoyed through the commitment shown to the importance of skills and our charitable objectives recognised by this chartership. Her loss will be keenly felt across the nation and across the world. Our critical work continues, we will be updating our centres, learners and other stakeholders as further information becomes available.
