Birthdays and Anniversaries marked by HM The King
Receiving a message from The King is an extra special gesture to mark a memorable day and is met with delight from recipients.
Some life events are worth recognition and that is certainly true of the milestones that can be celebrated with a personal message from The King.
Who can request a message from The King
Available to anyone marking these special occasions, a family member can apply for a message to be sent for the following milestones:
- 100th birthday
- 105th birthday (and every year after)
- 60th wedding anniversary (diamond anniversary)
- 65th wedding anniversary (blue sapphire anniversary)
