Queen Elizabeth has shared an uplifting message for everyone in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth:

‘Thank you to everyone who has been involved in convening communities, families, neighbours and friends to mark my Platinum Jubilee, in the United Kingdom and across the Commonwealth. 

‘I know that many happy memories will be created at these festive occasions.
