The content originally appeared on: Antigua News Room

Today in our nation – and throughout the Commonwealth – we are celebrating our glorious Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR WHATSAPP GROUP.

Elizabeth – the second of that name – our most beloved Sovereign and Head of the Commonwealth for seventy years. How apt that this should be the Platinum anniversary of her accession – Platinum – that most noble of metals, more precious even than gold.

And so it is in honour of this unique occasion that beacons will be lit this evening throughout the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and the UK Overseas Territories – and in all the Capital Cities of the Commonwealth.

Let it be known, in proclaiming this tribute to Her Majesty the Queen on her Platinum Jubilee, that we are one nation and one Commonwealth.

God Save The Queen.
