President Obama Sends 'Heartfelt Congratulations' to The Queen

Queen Elizabeth leaves a service of thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Tuesday (June 5) in London, England.

The 86-year-old monarch celebrated her Diamond Jubilee with members of the Royal Family, including her son Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. The Queen‘s grandchildren, Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, and Prince Harry also participated in the festivities.

President Obama sent his “heartfelt congratulations” to The Queen in a video message released by the White House.

“As a steadfast ally, loyal friend and tireless leader, your majesty has set an example of resolve that will be long celebrated. And as we work together to build a better future for the next generation, it is gratifying to know that the bonds between our nations remain indispensable to our two countries and the world,” he said.

“In honour of your 60 extraordinary years on the throne, communities across the commonwealth have lit thousands of Jubilee beacons,” Barack added. “May the light of your majesty’s crown reign supreme for many years to come.”
