Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of the UK, said, "The events that I have attended to mark my Diamond Jubilee have been a humbling experience.

But Prince Philip and I want to take this opportunity to offer our special thanks and appreciation to all those who have had a hand in organizing these Jubilee celebrations."
