Tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022)

The International Association of Ports and Harbors shares in the deep sadness felt at the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Queen Elizabeth II was an enthusiastic supporter of the maritime sector along with the wider Royal Family. At several of our events held in London, IAPH was fortunate to count on participation of Members of the Royal Family, including at the 1965 and 1997 World Ports Conferences and the Africa-Europe regional meeting in 2005. Managing director Patrick Verhoeven had the honour of personally meeting Her Majesty at the 70th anniversary celebration of the IMO in 2018. Queen Elizabeth’s dedication and service will continue to inspire and will always be remembered.
