Queen Elizabeth II: Life, Legacy & Service to Britain - LECTURE


Each summer, the Sir Edward Heath Annual Lecture – organised by The Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation – looks at an issue spanning the post-war period in Britain or the wider world, offering a lively platform for a public conversation in the spectacular setting of Salisbury Cathedral. Moderated by Gyles Brandreth, this year’s lecture will honour the remarkable life of our late Queen, HM Elizabeth II, featuring a line-up of world-class speakers to discuss a 70-year reign that offers a unique window on modern Britain and its place in the world.

The speakers will give their personal appreciation of the Queen, both as an individual and as our national leader, and assess the challenges, achievements and legacy of her reign, as well as exploring her constitutional role in Britain and the Commonwealth, and the future of the monarchy. The panel includes:

Angela Rippon
Renowned broadcaster who has covered royal events for half a century.

Ailsa Anderson
Served as press secretary to the Queen for twelve years from 2001 to 2013.

Robert Hardman
Daily Mail writer and author of the biographies Queen of Our Times and Charles III.

Hugo Vickers
