The first casting of the Queen’s Jubilee Statue commissioned by the Runnymede Council was erected on a magnificent site in a bend of the Thames opposite the Magna Carta Memorial on Sunday 14th June.
The unveiling by John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons; Philip Holland, the Foreign Secretary and local MP; and Daniel Hannan, the MEP for Thames Valley was a high point of the Magna Carta 800th Anniversary celebrations.
The statue has received universal acclaim in the Press which gave the ceremony extensive coverage. The picture shows the 10-foot casting on the day it was installed on its plinth and hopefully will encourage other towns, cities and Commonwealth countries with suitable sites to approach us and discuss the acquisition of a Queen’s Jubilee Statue.
On 9th September this year, the Queen will have ruled for 23,227 days, one day longer than her great, great grandmother, Queen Victoria.
We are encouraging overseas governments and town halls throughout the UK, plus other organisations with a special link to Her Majesty, to consider ordering a statue to commemorate this historic event, as the Queen will be the longest serving monarch in British history.
If you are involved with any organisation that would like to consider commemorating Her Majesty’s wonderful reign in this way, please get in touch. In addition, if as a family, a firm, or a local organisation you’d like to buy an individually cast maquette (approximately 2 feet tall) of the statue, exactly similar to the one approved by the Palace in 2012, please contact Peter Brown at Her Majesty’s Jubilee Statue, Tel: 0207 402 6050 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
