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.”

    “It’s no good praying to the powers that be
    ‘Cause they won’t shake the roots of the money tree
    No good praying to the pristine alters
    Waiting for the blessing with Holy water
    They like the same old wealth in the same old hands
    Means the same old people stay old people stay in command
    Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round
    They got it wrapped up tight, they got it safe and sound
    Watch your money-go-round; watch your money-go-round
    As you fall from grace and hit the ground

    Too much money in too few places
    Only puts a smile on particular faces
    Said too much power in not enough hands
    Makes me think “get rich quick; take all I can”
    They’re too busy spending on the means of destruction
    To ever spend a penny on some real construction”

    Wow the 2 ugly step sisters Eugenie and Beatrice, could their outfits be more hideous?! Please someone get them a better stylist!
    Kate looks amazing and always upstages those 2 girls!

  • Ani

    Actually, Beatrice and Eugenie look pretty good. And there is absolutely no reason to be so rude; those girls haven’t done anything to you! And as a proud Brit, may I add GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!

  • alwaysus

    @USA: I agree. They are fug.

    to Ashley

    what you, an American, think of the monarchy really is not important.

  • Lona

    Prince Harry is the real deal <3
    Congrats for the queen!!

  • lll

    Here she’s smiling but during the jubilee yesterday she looked sooo bored the whole time. Stiff upper lip. Sometimes it looked as if she was actually afraid of the public, or as she sees them – her royal subjects.

  • O-VoterRemorse

    Youtube Obama’s biggest gaffe ever toasting the Queen…what an embarassment he is and I voted for him.

  • Lillibet

    God save our gracious Queen,
    Long live our noble Queen,
    God save the Queen!
    Send her victorious,
    Happy and glorious,
    Long to reign over us,
    God save the Queen!

    O lord God arise,
    Scatter our enemies,
    And make them fall!
    Confound their knavish tricks,
    Confuse their politics,
    On you our hopes we fix,
    God save the Queen!

    Not in this land alone,
    But be God’s mercies known,
    From shore to shore!
    Lord make the nations see,
    That men should brothers be,
    And form one family,
    The wide world ov’er

    From every latent foe,
    From the assasins blow,
    God save the Queen!
    O’er her thine arm extend,
    For Britain’s sake defend,
    Our mother, prince, and friend,
    God save the Queen!

    Thy choicest gifts in store,
    On her be pleased to pour,
    Long may she reign!
    May she defend our laws,
    And ever give us cause,
    To sing with heart and voice,
    God save the Queen!

    When is she going to die already? I can’t wait to celebrate.

    The Queen has had her position for 60 years. In the U.S.A. a President can stay in power from 4 to 8 years. I think we here in North America have a better idea of democracy.

  • Pooty

    Jeepers Creepers!

    Eugenie and Beatrice dress like frumpy ole ladies.

    Eugenie applies too much make up…creating raccoon eyes.

    They have wealth but such bad tacky taste in clothes!

    ye gads!

  • anon2

    The Queen looks wonderful and Beatrice and Eugenie both look lovely! They do not look frumpy at all and the colors are great for this spring event. Their hats are excellent as they as a touch of class but without being obvious.

    @CutTheBSThey have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong.
    Proverbs 23:17 Do not let your heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of the LORD.
    Ecclesiastes 8:14 There is something else meaningless that occurs on earth: righteous men who get what the wicked deserve, and wicked men who get what the righteous deserve. This too, I say, is meaningless.
    Jeremiah 12:1 You are always righteous, O LORD, when I bring a case before you. Yet I would speak with you about your justice: Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all the faithless live at ease?
    All I askeed for was coast guard helicopter license a job to fix fine and teeth and time to study afor my rn and time to work this mind of destruction off me that prepared for my son the high priest: I only had some buisness ideals that it I didnt ask for your hand in marriage for your money are to discourage Malia to be your wife look Im poor and Im the Queen of Heaven
