Queen Elizabeth ascended the British throne on 6 February 1952, and this year she celebrates 70 years on the throne. In British history, no monarch has reigned longer than Queen Elizabeth II. She is a worldwide much-loved, admired and respected personality.
During her extraordinary reign, she has travelled further than any other monarch and made many historic overseas visits. The Queen is known for her sense of duty and dedication to a life of service to the British nation and the Commonwealth. In times of enormous social change, she is an important symbolic figure for the United Kingdom and Commonwealth.
On her twenty-first birthday, 21 April 1947, Princess Elizabeth was with her parents and younger sister on a tour of South Africa. In a speech broadcast on the radio from Cape Town, the Princess dedicated her whole life into the service of the British Nation and the Commonwealth:
"I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong."
Princess Elizabeth, 1947
On the Queen's Accession Day on 6th February 2022 she renewed her pledge:
"As we mark this anniversary, it gives me pleasure to renew to you the pledge I gave in 1947 that my life will always be devoted to your service. As I look ahead with a sense of hope and optimism to the year of my Platinum Jubilee, I am reminded of how much we can be thankful for."
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 2022
Tribute to HM The Queen
My dear wife, the Lady of North Cadbury and I offer our congratulations to Her Majesty the Queen and humbly pay tribute on her 70th Jubilee of Accession to the Throne.
Queen Elizabeth II is the longest reigning monarch in British history and has dedicated her whole life to the service and duty of the nation. She is one of the greatest personalities in the world who presents her nation with proud and dignity and she has reached a high age of 96 years this year, which should be recognised.
For her lifelong dedication and devotion to her country, the Queen deserves absolute respect and utmost gratitude.
This extraordinary Platinum Jubilee is an occasion to celebrate and honour the life and reign of Her Majesty The Queen, with significant events which are celebrated around Britain and the world from 2nd to 5th June.
We are pleased to celebrating this unique anniversary and honouring a very remarkable Lady.
My Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen, please take a glass of Champagne and let us hold a toast to Her Majesty The Queen with all the very best wishes, a good health and long reigning,
God save the Queen!
Lord & Lady of North Cadbury
