The sixtieth anniversary of Queen Victoria’s accession fell on a Sunday, so it was decided that a family service would be held at St George’s Chapel in Windsor and that the public Diamond Jubilee celebrations would be held two days later in London. On Tuesday 22nd June 1897, Queen Victoria telegraphed a message to all the countries of her Empire before leaving Buckingham Palace for St Paul.
A Burnham-On-Sea couple have received a card from The Queen to congratulate them on their 60th wedding anniversary.

Mike is the Secretary of West Huntspill Model Engineering Society and can be seen most Sundays.

The symbols have changed over time. For example, in the United Kingdom, diamond was a well known symbol for the 75th anniversary, but this changed to the now more common 60th anniversary after Queen Victoria's 60 years on the throne was widely marked as her Diamond Jubilee. The origins of the current gift conventions date to 1937.
A diamond wedding anniversary letter from the queen is a more of a greeting card than a letter. The congratulatory letter initially did not come from the reigning monarch but from the Private Secretary of the time in behalf of the Sovereign. A sample congratulatory message during the reign of King George V read: His Majesty's hope that the blessings of good health and prosperity may attend you.
