Celebrating the Queen
Crowds gathered today (Saturday, 15 June 2013) in front of the Legislative Assembly to witness a colourful public ceremony that marked the Cayman Islands official observance of the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The ceremony began with His Excellency the Governor inspecting a parade made up of contingents from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS), the Fire Service, Her Majesty's Prison Service, the Girls Brigade, the Scouts and Cub Scouts, the Veterans Association and the Cadet Corps.
A highlight of the ceremony was presentations made to past recipients of Queen's Honours: Leonard Ebanks, Cora Grant-James, Harold Banks and Nicole Tyson-Petit. Missing was Francis Zelmalee Ebanks who will receive her award on a later date. There were no new awardees this year.
Coordinated by the Cayman Islands Protocol Office, this year marks the 87th birthday of Her Majesty the Queen.
