Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Opens the New Headquarters of the SSAFA. (VIDEO)

On November 8, 2013, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh arrived at Queen Elizabeth House in London to open the new headquarters of the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Families Association (SSAFA), a charity which supports members — active and non-active — of the British Armed Forces and their families.

During today’s opening, according to the official website for SSAFA, Her Majesty and the duke were:

“…told of the current work of the charity before attending a reception where guests included beneficiaries, volunteers and staff from across SSAFA’s range of services.

The Queen unveiled a plaque to mark the opening and was presented with a badge to mark the 60 years of Her Majesty’s support as Patron.”
