Lloyd’s hosts ceremony in remembrance of the Queen

Lloyd’s today hosted a ceremony to remember Queen Elizabeth II and to mark the accession of King Charles III.

Beginning with a single ring of the Lutine Bell to mark the death of the Queen, and ending with two rings to acclaim the new King, the ceremony in the Underwriting Room at One Lime Street was open to all Lloyd’s passholders, including members of the Lloyd’s market and employees of the Corporation of Lloyd’s.

Bruce Carnegie-Brown, chairman of Lloyd’s, said: “Our thoughts remain with the Royal Household at this sad time. We were fortunate to host Her Majesty at Lloyd’s on a number of occasions during her reign and all who were there cherish the memory of those visits.

“In recent years we have worked alongside His Majesty King Charles in support of his Sustainable Markets Initiative and look forward to continuing our close association with this important work to create a more sustainable world.”

The state funeral of the Queen will be held on Monday 19 September 2022. This has been declared a day of national mourning and will be a bank holiday in the UK.

The Lloyd’s building and Underwriting Room will be closed on this day, as will Lloyd’s global offices. The Union Jack at Lloyd’s will fly at half-mast throughout the duration of the mourning period, until after the funeral. A book of condolence has been placed in the Underwriting Room and will later be displayed within the building.
