On Tuesday, March 22, 2022, Their Royal Highness The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston, Jamaica, as part of their three-day royal tour of the Caribbean in celebration of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee year.
On Monday, March 14, 2022, Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall accompanied by Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra, The Honourable Lady Ogilvy, attended the Commonwealth Day Service held at Westminster Abbey in London, England. Sadly, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II did not attend today’s service. This was due to “…mobility issues, not an illness.”
The theme for this year’s Commonwealth Day Service is, Delivering A Common Future, and it is the first in-person gathering of the Commonwealth since the start of the pandemic. Today’s event also reflected on Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee Year with a special focus on the role that service plays in the lives of people and communities across the Commonwealth.
Below is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 2022 Commonwealth Day message:
“In this year of my Platinum Jubilee, it has given me pleasure to renew the promise I made in 1947, that my life will always be devoted in service.
Today, it is rewarding to observe a modem, vibrant and connected Commonwealth that combines a wealth of history and tradition with the great social, cultural and technological advances of our time.
That the Commonwealth stands ever taller is a credit to all who have been involved. We are nourished and sustained by our relationships and, throughout my life, I have enjoyed the privilege of hearing what the relationships built across the great reach and diversity of the Commonwealth have meant to people and communities.
Our family of nations continues to be a point of connection, cooperation and friendship. It is a place to come together to pursue common goals and the common good, providing everyone with the opportunity to serve and benefit.
In these testing times, it is my hope that you can draw strength and inspiration from what we share, as we work together towards a healthy, sustainable and prosperous future for all.
And on this special day for our family — in a year that will include the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and the Commonwealth Games — I hope we can deepen our resolve to support and serve one another, and endeavour to ensure the Commonwealth remains an influential force for good in our world for many generations to come.

Those in Germany can watch the ceremony onZDF. In Sweden you can watch it on SVT. In Australia, try Channel Seven, Nine Network, or ABC online. In Denmark, DR1 will air the ceremony starting at 8:30am.
Television: In the United States check out, BBC America, PBS, CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, or that crappy station FauxNews (FoxNews). However, I recommend that you tune into BBC America or watch BBC online.
Official Royal Wedding 2011: This is the official website for the British royal wedding whereupon you can learn all about the service, the procession, and much more. Highly recommended!
