Her Majesty The Queen will send a congratulatory message on the following occasions and these can be presented by the Lord-Lieutenant or one of the Deputy Lieutenants if the celebrant would wish a visit.

Wedding Anniversaries

The Queen sends messages for Diamond (60th), 65th and Platinum (70th) wedding anniversaries and then every year thereafter. Due to GDPR, families now need to inform us of the Anniversary so the Lieutenancy can arrange a card. 

Birthdays

The Queen sends messages for 100th and 105th birthdays and then every year thereafter. Due to GDPR, families now need to inform us of the person's birthday so the Lieutenancy can arrange a card. 

How to Apply for Congratulatory Message
