Royal Commonwealth Society appoints HMG for Queen’s Diamond Jubilee publication
by Adam Nethersole
In June 2012, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate her Diamond Jubilee, and with it 60 years as head of the Commonwealth. To mark this memorable occasion, the Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS) has appointed Henley Media Group to produce a publication looking back over the last 60 years of the Queen's life and her role as head of the Commonwealth, and looking forward to the Queen and Commonwealth of tomorrow.
As well as providing a unique opportunity to mark HM The Queen's Jubilee, the publication will celebrate the modern Commonwealth and demonstrate the diversity and vitality of its member nations and the organisations that support the Commonwealth.
The publication's distribution will include Commonwealth Heads of Government, Commonwealth Foreign Ministers, Commonwealth High Commissions and Embassies in London, senior officials in British government, including Ministers, Members of Parliament and representatives of the House of Lords, RCS members and VIPs attending the 2012 Commonwealth Day Observance. The book will also be available to buy throughout the Commonwealth.
Founded in 1868, the RCS conducts a range of events and activities aimed at promoting international understanding, including educational, youth and cultural programmes. HM Queen Elizabeth II is Patron and the RCS has some 4000 members in the UK and a presence in 40 Commonwealth countries through a network of branches and Commonwealth societies. The RCS is a registered charity in England & Wales (226748). See www.thercs.org.
