Message from the Prime Minister on behalf of the Government of New Zealand


Your Majesty

On behalf of the government of New Zealand, I extend our heartfelt good wishes as we celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Your Majesty's accession to the Thone.

This Queen's Birthday weekend in June is a time when people across the Commonwealth will celebrate and reflect on Your Majesty's seventy-year reign. This is an extraordinary achievement, and your reign has spanned extraordinary events, changes, and challenges in each of the Realm nations and across the entire Commonwealth.

As Queen of New Zealand, Your Majesty continues to give service to our nation as the embodiment of our constitutional monarchy, bringing to many a sense of stability and continuity. Your dedication and commitment to service, your deep interest in the people of Aotearoa New Zealand, and your concern and caring for our nation's life and wellbeing, are warmly respected and celebrated across the nation.

We wish Your Majesty great joy during the celebrations at Queen's Birthday weekend, and through the whole Platinum Jubilee year.


Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern
