The Queen died aged 96 at Balmoral, her beloved Scottish castle estate, after 70 years on the throne.

Janvrin and other officials on the committee will look at Elizabeth’s life of public service and the causes she supported, and recommend plans for a national legacy program to honor the late queen.

“It will be a unique challenge to capture for future generations Her Late Majesty’s extraordinary contribution to our national life during her very long reign,” said Janvrin, who worked in various roles at Buckingham Palace from 1987 to 2007.

The recommendations are presented to Elizabeth’s heir, King Charles III, and the Prime Minister.

In 1955, Elizabeth unveiled a statue of her father, George VI. on the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.
