    Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh attended a service at St. George's?

  • Description

    Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh attended a service at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, on Sunday May 18th, to commemorate Commonwealth Youth Sunday. This is the twenty-first anniversary.

    Throughout the British Commonwealth young people of a variety of race and creeds observed this occasion.

    Representatives from many Commonwealth countries were among the eight hundred-strong congregation at St. George's Chapel. Her Majesty was received by the Dean of Windsor at the Great West door and by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

    The Archbishop gave an address and the Dean of Windsor read the Queen's message. This same message was read, in a multitude of dialects, to young people at services all over the world.

    Before leaving the chapel the Queen and the Duke spoke to two of the congregation, they were nineteen-year-old Mary Roberts of Gambia, and sixteen-year-old Colin Warden from Bansteal, Surrey, both of whom were representing Commonwealth youth at Windsor.
