Her Majesty The Queen
HM The Queen has been the patron of the Royal Institute of International Affairs since her ascension to the throne in 1952. The institute was granted its Royal Charter in 1926 by her grandfather, George V.
Chatham House’s three presidents underpin the institute’s independent, non-partisan voice on international affairs. The presidents confirm, through their experiences at the highest levels of government and diplomacy, the connection between Chatham House and policy-makers.
