  April 27, 2017 at 5:03 pm by

The London Press Club has named Queen Elizabeth II their ‘Londoner of the Year’ during their annual awards ceremony held today at the Corinthia Hotel. The Queen’s second son, the Duke of York, was present to accept the award on her behalf.

“Her Majesty has presided over our second Great Elizabethan Age – and pulled off a task of extraordinary historical and constitutional importance…For on the one hand she has been a beacon of stability, our steadfast rock in an age of great turbulence, anxiety and change.

Yet at the same time as being a figure of such continuity, our Sovereign has also presided over an extraordinary transformation in the Monarchy to equip it for the modern age and the next generation,” the Executive Director of the Telegraph Media Group, Lord Guy Black (husband of Prince Charles’s former Deputy Private Secretary, Mark Bolland), said during the event.
