Variety, the Children’s Charity, is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. We are all mourning the profound loss of a great monarch who served our country so faithfully all her life and was respected the world over. 

Variety’s history in the United Kingdom is inextricably linked to the Royal Family, as Prince Philip helped to establish the charity here in 1949. The interest that Her Majesty continued to take in our charity and its works has been a source of great pride and honour, for which we are deeply grateful.

The Queen was an ever-fixed mark in our lives. As the world around us changed and politicians came and went, The Queen was our backbone. Her constant presence will be greatly missed.
