Trustees Statement on the ICE’s Royal Patronage

Official statement.

Institution of Civil Engineers
Institution of Civil Engineers

The Institution respects the Duke of York’s decision to step back from public life and to stand down from his Patronages including the Institution.

The Duke has been a strong advocate for the Institution over the period in which he has been our Patron and was very supportive during our 200th Anniversary in 2018.

The Institution is grateful for everything he has done for us and accepts his decision.

The Institution is not seeking a new Patron.
