“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.”
