On behalf of The Board and Staff of the Port of London Authority:
They are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
The Queen was a friend of, and visitor to the river over her long reign. The Thames, the royal river, hosted numerous events, including the River Pageant in 2012, marking Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee.
It was our privilege to maintain the royal barge, the Royal Nore for Her Majesty. The Nore was used during visits to the Thames for official events including: the official opening of the new London Bridge in March 1973; the Thames Barrier, in May 1984; the Millennium Dome in 1999; and the Millennium Footbridge in 2000.
Everyone at Port of London Authority expresses their condolences to the Royal Family at this sad time.
