The Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London is Her Majesty's representative in Greater London, comprising the 32 London boroughs.[1]

Each Lord-Lieutenant is assisted in, largely ceremonial, duties by Deputy Lieutenants whom he appoints;[2] the Lieutenancy Office is based at Whitehall, London SW1.

Created under the Administration of Justice Act (1964), this office merged those of Lord-Lieutenant of the County of London (cr. 1889) and the ancient Lord-Lieutenancy of Middlesex.[3]

From 1965, the following have served as HM Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London :

The ceremonial county of Greater London does not include the City of London, which has its own Commission of Lieutenancy.
