6th February - The Diamond Jubilee - God Bless Her

The Queen released a statement today to mark her accession to the throne on February 6th 1952.

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.
ELIZABETH R.

I find it a tad odd to be celebrating 60 years since the death of King George VI.

This is the same queen who betrayed her solemn Coronation Oath when she signed away OUR sovereignty - of which she was the embodiment, not the owner - to unelected foreigners in a foreign land. Some would call it Treason.
Give dear old Mrs Windsor a bus pass and send her on her way.
