Welcome to the Surrey Lieutenancy. This website seeks to inform and update you on the role of our Lord-Lieutenant, Mr Michael More-Molyneux, and the far-reaching ways in which the Lieutenancy supports and impacts on the life of this county. 

The Lord-Lieutenant is appointed by HM The Queen to be her personal representative in Surrey and to uphold the dignity of the Crown. Supported by the Vice Lord-Lieutenant and by 42 other Deputy Lieutenants, Michael More-Molyneux is the chief link between the Monarch and her people in the county. 

We invite you to use this website to familiarise yourself with the workings of the Surrey Lieutenancy and the way in which it can act as a conduit for you to the Royal Family, the Honours System, Queen’s Awards and congratulatory messages. 

Most especially, we hope it will widen your understanding of the recognition the Lord-Lieutenant gives to the armed forces, voluntary service, faith groups and charitable organisations. This is consistent with the interest he takes in the commercial and societal life of Surrey and its inhabitants, of all ages and cultures.
