The Queen Celebrates 70 Years of the International Maritime Organisation

The Queen Celebrates 70 Years of the International Maritime Organisation

70 years after opening the International Maritime Organisation, the Queen returns to celebrate its anniversary.

The Queen Celebrates 70 Years of the International Maritime Organisation

The Queen paid a visit to the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in London to mark the 70th year of its formation. Her Majesty originally opened the organisation’s headquarters in 1983 (pictured below). IMO is a specialised agency of the United Nations, which establishes the standards for security, environmental performance and safety in international shipping.

During her visit the Queen admired a model of the RMS Queen Mary 2 transatlantic ocean liner, viewed an exhibition about the role of modern shipping and examined a lighthouse optic.

She then unveiled and presented a plaque reading “This plaque was unveiled by her Majesty The Queen on the occasion of her visit to commemorate the seventieth anniversary of the international maritime organisation 6th March 2018”.

The Secretary General of IMO thanked the Queen for her presence. “Your Majesty, I … know that you have a deep personal interest in ships and the sea, as your presence here today clearly shows”, he said. The Queen then cut the celebratory cake to mark the 70th anniversary.
