  • Description

    THE QUEEN AND THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH TODAY (SATURDAY) JOINED REPRESENTATIVES OF MANY COUNTRIES AT A SPECIAL SERVICE FOR COMMONWEALTH DAY. IT WAS HELD AT ST. MARTINS-IN-THE-FIELDS WHICH LOOKS OVER LONDON'S TRAFALGAR SQUARE.

    IN HER COMMONWEALTH DAY MESSAGE, THE QUEEN SAID EACH NATION BELONGED TO THE GROUP THROUGH ITS OWN CHOICE. SHE WENT ON: "IT CHOOSES TO BELONG, BECAUSE IT SEES IN THE COMMONWEALTH A GREAT CO-OPERATIVE EFFORT FOR PEACEFUL DEVELOPMENT, TO WHICH IT WISHES TO CONTRIBUTE AND FROM WHICH IT HOPES TO BENEFIT."
    THE QUEEN SAID THE ULTIMATE AMBITIONS WHICH LINKED COMMONWEALTH COUNTRIES TOGETHER WERE FREEDOM AND FULLNESS OF LIFE. "IT IS THE CONSTANT PURSUIT OF THESE COMMON AIMS THAT TODAY I COMMEND TO YOU ALL, AS PARTNERS IN AN ENTERPRISE WHICH WILL INFLUENCE FOR GOOD THE FUTURE OF THE HUMAN RACE," SHE SAID.

    REPRESENTATIVES OF VARIOUS RELIGIONS IN COMMONWEALTH COUNTRIES GAVE READINGS DURING THE SERVICE.
