60th Anniversary: Coronation of Elizabeth II
SUDBURY CASTLE
KELLSMINSTER

HARH The Archduke of Hanover

This day marks the 60th anniversary of the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as Sovereign of the United Kingdom, of Canada, of Australia, of New Zealand, of all her other current realms, territories, and dominions, and of many other countries which have since declared their independence of her (Elizabeth II is, in fact, the most deposed monarch in history).

In an age wherein other European monarchs begin their reigns with investitures and oath-taking events, Queen Elizabeth II was crowned and anointed in the ancient manner following the ceremonial custom of many centuries of monarchy in Britain. In Rome, two Popes would, after Elizabeth's coronation, permit themselves to be crowned in the old manner before their successors yielded to modern expectations, leaving Elizabeth as the last surviving "Crowned Head of Europe" in the authentic sense.

On this special anniversary for our world's longest serving head of state, the Glennish monarchy is pleased to extend warm congratulations to Queen Elizabeth II, wishing her health and happiness and many more years to reign over her Commonwealth. On behalf of the House of Willanchurch and in the name of Her Majesty the Queen, I applaud Queen Elizabeth for setting and faithfully maintaining the standard against which all other Western monarchies measure themselves and one another.

His August Royal Highness The Prince James Richard Edward George, Archduke of Hanover, Lord High Steward of Hanover, Lord Great Marischal of Sconeland, Queen's Remembrancer
