On the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

We mark and mourn the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, an extraordinary monarch and the cornerstone of the Special Relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom. We wish to express condolences to our Royal Patron of the National Museum of the Royal Navy, Princess Anne, on the loss of her cherished mother. Our hearts are with the Royal Family, the people of the United Kingdom and all members of the Armed Forces, past and present.

We commemorated Pickle Night in New York City, and marked the 216th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar with a virtual program. The online gathering was recorded, and is accessible to ticket-holders and donors to AFNMRN. To become a donor, click here.
