A message from the Bishop of London to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee

“Most of us have simply not known life without Her Majesty the Queen. Together we are marking and celebrating duty, service and dedication on an extraordinary and unprecedented scale.

When she acceded to the throne, the world and the country were both very different places. For 70 years, Her Majesty has remained a remarkable constant in the lives of millions, a symbol of unity, strength and resilience. She has been this nation’s unerring heartbeat, through times of progress, joy and celebration, as well as in darker and more difficult times.

I have been proud to serve, in recent years, not just as Bishop of London but as Dean of Her Majesty’s Chapels Royal. The Queen has often remarked that she has drawn great comfort in Christ’s teachings throughout her life, and her deep Christian faith continually shines through in an enduring, steadfast commitment to the common good.

We are blessed by Her Majesty’s calm leadership, her honour and her dignity. We should cherish all that she gives, knowing she has always given her all.”
