September 8, 2022 – The Board of Directors and everyone at the Richard Nixon Foundation extends sincere condolences to the British people and to those across the Commonwealth on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. 

The Queen was a leader of unparalleled ability, a pillar of strength in the Western world who brought inspiration, hope, reassurance and stability to all of the countries of which she was Sovereign, and to her friends across the world, for a staggering seven decades. 

On her first trip to the United States as Queen, Vice President and Mrs. Nixon greeted her on behalf of the American people, beginning a special bilateral friendship that would last for the next seventy years.

The American people have lost more than a friend, they’ve lost an Honorary Citizen.
