Anniversary messages

Her Majesty The Queen may be requested to send a congratulatory message to couples who reach their diamond (60th), 65th and 70th wedding anniversaries, and every year thereafter. 

Applications should be made to Buckingham Palace, enclosing a photocopy of the couple's marriage certificate, no sooner than three weeks before the anniversary.  It is also possible to receive a belated message up to six months after the event.

Application forms can be downloaded from the Buckingham Palace website which contains further information on the process.
