Shell CEO offers his condolences to the British Royal Family

On behalf of Shell staff in the UK, the Commonwealth nations and across the wider world, we offer our deepest condolences to the British Royal Family.

We mourn the passing of an historic global leader of immense stature, courage and integrity. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II spent a life dedicated to serving the country and improving the lives of others. And for so many of us her loss will be felt personally.

I was fortunate enough to meet Her Majesty and was always struck by her strength, kindness and ability to find common cause with those around her.

Ben van Beurden

Chief Executive Officer, Shell
