Queen Elizabeth's - 60th Anniversary of Accession

Queen Elizabeth has marked the 60th anniversary of her accession to the throne by spending a low-key day with school children.

Today, as I mark 60 years as your Queen, I am writing to thank you for the wonderful support and encouragement that you have given to me and Prince Philip over these years and to tell you how deeply moved we have been to receive so many kind messages about the Diamond Jubilee.

In this special year, as I dedicate myself anew to your service, I hope we will all be reminded of the power of togetherness and the convening strength of family, friendship and good neighbourliness, examples of which I have been fortunate to see throughout my reign and which my family and I look forward to seeing in many forms as we travel throughout the United Kingdom and the wider Commonwealth.

I hope also that this Jubilee year will be a time to give thanks for the great advances that have been made since 1952 and to look forward to the future with clear head and warm heart as we join together in our celebrations.

I send my sincere good wishes to you all.


God Save the Queen!

Long May You Reign!

  1. She is a remarkable Lady and Queen. No one will ever know what it is really like to be in that position. She has devoted her life to the job and done a bang up job. I fear for the job when she is gone. I hope it can continue on as long as it has in the past. I love the Royals and love you for blogging about them. Thanks for sharing.
