Sir Bob wishes Queen a happy 92nd birthday


THE Queen has been praised for her 66-year reign and “exceptional service” as head of the Commonwealth as she celebrates her 92nd birthday this weekend.
Monday has been declared a public holiday to celebrate her birthday.
Governor-General Sir Bob Dadae conveyed the nation’s “warm wishes” to her.
“On behalf of the people and the government of Papua New Guinea, I take this time to convey my warm congratulations to Her Majesty,” he said.
“Throughout her life, the Queen has exemplified exceptional service and dedication spanning 66 years as the reigning monarch and head of the Commonwealth.
“In joining the rest of the Commonwealth nations in celebrating the Queen’s birthday this weekend, I extend also, on behalf of our nation, our warm wishes for good health and many more years for Her Majesty.”
He urged the people of PNG to spare a moment to reflect on what it meant to be part of the Commonwealth.
Queen Elizabeth’s actual birthday is on April 21. The “official” birthday – celebrated by all reigning monarchs since King Edward VII – falls on the second Saturday in June.
