ANNENBERG--Leonore. The Trustees, members and staff of the American Associates of the Royal Academy Trust express great sadness at the passing of long-standing Trustee, Leonore Annenberg. Mrs. Annenberg, with her husband, Ambassador Walter H. Annenberg, during their tenure at the Court of St. James's and in the years following, earned the deep affection and admiration of British society for their understanding and appreciation of British Culture and their magnamous efforts to preserve and promote it. In May of 2002, HM Queen Elizabeth II formally named the forecourt of Burlington House, the home of the Royal Academy of Arts, the "Annenberg Courtyard" in honor of the Annenbergs, whose generosity made possible the renovation of this magnificent public space. We are privileged that Leonore Annenberg served as a Trustee of the American Associates. She enriched us with her presence and commitment. Leonore and Walter have left a legacy at Burlington House that will forever be a part of the Royal Academy of Arts. C. Hugh Hildesley Acting Chairman On behalf of the Trustees of The American Associates of the Royal Academy Trust
