Queen’s Jubilee Talk (24 July 2022)

Queen’s Jubilee Talk (24 July 2022)

A Talk about Her Majesty the Queen Platinum Jubilee 2022

Ian Alston will lead the talk and discussion.

As the Queen becomes older, people are more aware than ever of her great qualities:

  • Her vigilance
  • Her reliability
  • Her work ethic
  • Her impartiality and discretion
  • Her dignity and constancy.

She is arguably a personification of all the virtues of Sanatana Dharma.

Ian will discuss these qualities of the Queen whilst at the same time assessing her role in the constitution.

We live in a United Kingdom and so we will explore the various ways the Queen unites the country, in good times and bad, particularly the role of pageantry and how the activities of all levels of government are carried out in her name.

We will look at the significance of the Coronation, her role as Head of The Commonwealth, and her willingness to change with the times.
