The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Seventy years ago, on 6 February 1952, a 25-year-old Princess Elizabeth asceded the throne, and became Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms. In this, the Platinum Jubilee year, we celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 years as Queen of New Zealand, reflect on the remarkable nature of this achievement, and acknowledge Her Majesty’s extraordinary life of service. 

You can read Her Majesty’s Accession Day statement, and find further information relating to the Platinum Jubilee in New Zealand here.
