A page from the Queen’s book

(CNS): Congratulations from the Cayman Islands are included in the newly-released commemorative book, Queen & Commonwealth: 90 Glorious Years, which celebrates the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II, as well as her years as monarch and head of the Commonwealth. The Cayman Islands’ spread includes a congratulatory message to the Queen and pays tribute to her long reign over this overseas territory.

Published by the Royal Commonwealth Society, the hardcover book, issued this week, contains more than 160 pages highlighting the Queen’s life and reign over the past nine decades, including her special interests, passions and her dedication to the Commonwealth.

The book also features birthday messages from Commonwealth member countries, and includes chapters such as “Princess Elizabeth – the Early Years” and her reign “Through the Decades”.

The Cayman Islands’ two-page ad, produced by Government Information Services, features an aerial shot by Courtney Platt, past royal visit photographs by Lennon Christian, stamps from Ivan Burges and the Cayman Islands National Archive, and currency from the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority.

The entire book can be viewed on the Cayman Islands Government Facebook page or directly online
