Her Majesty has always been extremely attentive, sensitive, and responsive to the needs and moods of her nation. This year she writes,

Today is traditionally a day of celebration. This year, however, it is difficult to escape a very sombre national mood. In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of terrible tragedies.

As a nation, we continue to reflect and pray for all those who have been directly affected by these events. During recent visits in Manchester and London, I have been profoundly struck by the immediate inclination of people throughout the country to offer comfort and support to those in desperate need.

Put to the test, the United Kingdom has been resolute in the face of adversity. United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favour, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss.

An “official” Happy Birthday to Her Majesty, The Queen!

Today The Queen and other members of The Royal Family attended Trooping the Colour – The Queen’s birthday parade.

Before The Trooping took place, The Queen led a minute’s silence for victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

After the British Army had finished the military ceremony, The Queen joined members of The Royal Family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the Royal Air Force Red Arrow display.

God save The Queen! Long live The Queen! May she enjoy health and long life, to reign in peace and guard her people.
