Golden Jubilee her Majesty's Coronation (Page 6 of 6)
The Golden Jubilee of the coronation of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II the 2nd June 2003
Constitutional Monarchy is the vital core of our life in this country and has enabled us not just to become a democracy, for that word has many meanings, but rather to be able to walk our streets and enjoy a sort of freedom which is unparalleled anywhere else in the World.
During the Coronation, The Queen swore an Oath to Her Peoples which She has held to be binding until her passing.
Her Majesty has never broken that Oath. The 50th Anniversary of Her Coronation is an opportunity for us all to give thanks to this great Lady.
In this, the Golden Jubilee of the Coronation of Her Majesty our Queen, may I close with the comments of the Countess of Longford:
"The Monarchy will survive because it is the People -- regardless of the politicians -- who want it.
They may not know why -- but they know they do.
hey want it to work well. They will endure bad times -- such as the Abdication and the recent problems with the younger Royals -- in order that good years may return.
The People want the Queen to remind them of their history and their traditions.
Above all they want a Head of State who is neutral because Her Majesty has never belonged to a political party.
A fit guardian of the Constitution because she has no personal ambition, only the wish to serve.
It is the fittest system of this century and it will survive because its existence keeps out other objectionable systems.
It is a splendid thing. It is our own."
May God Bless The Queen.
