On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland as you celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s official birthday this June 16. The United States has long viewed the Queen and her service to her nation with the deepest respect. In this Diamond Jubilee Year, her tireless dedication is a beacon of hope to peoples and countries around the world.

Our nations have a special history of friendship and close cooperation based on shared democratic values and respect for the rule of law. I am looking forward to the London Olympics where the international spotlight will shine on your country’s culture, commitment to democratic principles and human rights. Our nations are united in the pursuit of a more just and democratic future and these Olympics will give us the chance to once again come together in celebration of these values.

I send Queen Elizabeth II and the British people my most heartfelt congratulations on this special day. Best wishes for a year of peace, prosperity and happiness.
