The Archbishop of Canterbury was supposed to hold the Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral as part of the Platinum Jubilee weekend, but had to withdraw when he was stricken with the illness.

Yesterday, he finally got the chance to congratulate Her Majesty face-to-face, as part of a meeting with Her Majesty at Windsor Castle, in which he praised her ‘tiring’ service to the Church of England.

In the audience, Reverend Welby presented the Queen with the small silver cross, inspired by a 9th-century Saxon brooch and featuring a triquetra pattern, as a ‘sincere symbol’ of the Church’s ‘love, loyalty and affection’.

Presented in a vibrant red box and attached to a blue ribbon, the cross was made especially for the royal recipient with platinum inserts in recognition of her milestone 70 years on the throne.

The Queen, who has a deep Christian faith, is the Supreme Governor of the Church of England and the defender of the faith.

In the quote for the cross, which was also given to the Queen as a framed piece of calligraphy, the Archbishop praised the monarch, praising “her concern for the unity of her people and the well-being of the least fortunate” as a “continuous source of inspiration” . to the whole church.”

The queen’s life was “an example of a well-led Christian life,” he said.

The quote read: ‘During her reign, Her Majesty has duly upheld both the Christian religion and the Church of England in her role as Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England.

Whether in the formality of the opening sessions of the General Synod or in the more intimate context of her personal addresses to the nation and the Commonwealth at Christmas, Her Majesty has her own deep faith and its relevance to all that she undertakes. made clear.

‘Her subtle understanding of the changing position of the established church in England has supported and encouraged both laity and clergy.

“Her concern for the unity of her people and the well-being of the less fortunate have been a constant inspiration to the entire Church. Hair is an example of a well-led Christian life.

“This presentation of the Canterbury Cross is a genuine symbol of the love, loyalty and affection with which the Church of England cherishes Her Majesty and it represents the recognition and gratitude of her entire Church for her 70 years of unconditional service. God save the queen!’

The Queen had a busy start to June as the nation celebrated its anniversary over a four-day weekend of festivities.

These include a special Trooping the Color with hundreds of soldiers marching from Horse Guard Parade to Buckingham Palace, a special flyover through the Red Arrows and other military aircraft, as well as a special concert in honor of Her Majesty.

One was a Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral in London, where members of the royal family and others gathered to express their gratitude for the Queen’s 70-year reign.

However, Her Majesty herself was not present after experiencing ‘some inconvenience’ during the festivities of the previous days. She would also miss the Epsom Derby the following day, before appearing on the Platinum Jubilee Pageant on the final bank holiday.

The Thanksgiving service was to be held by the Archbishop of Canterbury, but a combination of Covid and pneumonia prevented him from doing so.

Instead, the Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell, took it in his place, praising Her Majesty for her “faithful steadfastness and steadfast consistency; a fidelity to God, an obedience to a calling which is a foundation of her life’.
