The Queen's 2022 Commonwealth Day Message
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has released the 2022 Commonwealth Day Message.
The Queensland Governor, Her Excellency the Honourable Dr Jeannette Young PSM will read the Message at a luncheon hosted by the Royal Commonwealth Society on Monday 14 March 2022, and at the Commonwealth Day Multi-Faith service on 15 March 2022.
The 2022 Commonwealth Day Message:
“In this year of my Platinum Jubilee, it has given me pleasure to renew the promise I made in 1947, that my life will always be devoted in service.
"Today, it is rewarding to observe a modern, vibrant and connected Commonwealth that combines a wealth of history and tradition with the great social, cultural and technological advances of our time. That the Commonwealth stands ever taller is a credit to all those who have been involved.
"We are nourished and sustained by our relationships and, throughout my life, I have enjoyed the privilege of hearing what the relationships built across the great reach and diversity of the Commonwealth have meant to people and communities.
"Our family of nations continues to be a point of connection, cooperation and friendship. It is a place to come together to pursue common goals and the common good, providing everyone with the opportunity to serve and benefit. In these testing times, it is my hope that you can draw strength and inspiration from what we share, as we work together towards a healthy, sustainable and prosperous future for all.
"And on this special day for our family - in a year that will include the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and the Commonwealth Games - I hope we can deepen our resolve to support and serve one another, and endeavour to ensure the Commonwealth remains an influential force for good in our world for many generations to come.”
