Coronation Day

On this date in 1953, HM The Queen did "solemnly promise and swear to govern the Peoples of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Union of South Africa, Pakistan and Ceylon, and of [Her] Possessions and other Territories to any of them belonging or pertaining, according to their respective laws and customs."

Her Majesty has faithfully fulfilled her oath for over 50 years and on this Coronation Day all of her peoples in each of her far-flung realms should give thanks. Through dedication, self-sacrifice and commitment to duty The Queen, the embodiment of our collective spirit and our national story, should serve as an inspiration to all.
