The Queen's message to England cricket captain Michael Vaughan following his team's victory in the Ashes series, 12 September 2005
Warmest congratulations to you, the England team and all in the squad for the magnificent achievement of regaining the Ashes. This has been a truly memorable series and both sides can take credit for giving us all such a wonderfully exciting and entertaining summer of cricket at its best.


Thank god there was no mention of Britain in there - I have no desire to commit regicide or to be a republican.
