Diamond Jubilee Celebration, Sydney Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Wednesday, 04 January 2012

The first celebration in Sydney of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee will be  on Friday, 3 February at Parliament House, Macquarie Street Sydney.

Image

This is to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty's accession to the throne on 6 February 1952.

Our keynote speaker is well-known to supporters of ACM and and as a legal and constitutional expert, to the general public. She is Professor Ann Twomey, one of the leading authorities in Australia and the world in relation to matters concerning the Australian Crown.

Professor Twomey has spoken on several occasions to ACM, and on a number of matters. In particular she has addressed the issues concerning the 1986 Australia Acts, and the fascinating relationship between the Australian states and the Crown. She has also spoken on possible changes to the succession, and on hung parliaments.

Her address on this occasion will be particularly appropriate. She will be speaking with particular reference to the momentous changes agreed recently in Perth between the sixteen Realms concerning the succession to the Throne.

Monday, 05 December 2011

A reader of our site, Justin,  has drawn our attention to the following exciting news from our sister realm, New Zealand, whose Governor-General Lt Gen The Rt Hon Sir Jerry Mateparae GNZM QSO has recently released a new emblem to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II next year.

Image

 “Queen Elizabeth has been our Queen since 6 February 1952,” Sir Jerry said on 29 November.   “She continues to be held in very high regard by the people of this country.  As her representative in New Zealand I’m delighted to release this beautiful emblem, which honours her 60 years as our sovereign.”

Sir Jerry said that there would be other ways in which the Diamond Jubilee was officially recognised.

Further announcements will be made in due course.  However, releasing the emblem is a fitting beginning
to the programme for the Jubilee year.”

An image of the emblem will be formatted and available for downloading for a variety of applications shortly.

 “People are free to associate the emblem with their Diamond Jubilee events,” said Sir Jerry.  “I hope that groups of New Zealanders will think about marking the Diamond Jubilee in their own way.”

The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II is the forthcoming international celebration in 2012 marking the 60th anniversary of the accession of The Queen. More information may be found on the relevant section of this site.

The British and Canadian governments have announced details of celebrations in those countries. To see how far ahead of us the Canadians are , glance at this video.

ACM is asking that similar celebrations take place in Australia.  Above all there should be a Diamond Jubilee Medal to honour Australians in all fields such as service, the arts, sports, bravery and so on.  

A petition to our governments and parliaments to honour The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012 may be signed here

Earlier this year we wrote to all federal, state, territory and opposition leaders calling on them to put in place appropriate celebrations. 

Now the Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister, Sentor Kate Lundy, has been tasked with deciding on a Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medial for next year.

Those concerned can post a comment on the Senator's Facebook Wall or contact her otherwise concerning their views about the Diamond Jubilee. They can sign the petition here
