The entire King’s School community mourns most deeply the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

Her steadfast faith, lived out in a life of selfless service and duty, has been truly inspirational. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the Royal Family in their time of profound loss.

This photo shows the School CCF providing the Guard of Honour for the visit of H.M. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh for the distribution of the Royal Maundy in Rochester Cathedral in 1961.

May she rest in peace.
