Commonwealth Day Observance

9 March 2009: Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip today attended a special service at Westminster Abbey to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Commonwealth. In her Commonwealth Day message, the Queen emphasised the importance of young people to the Commonwealth, noting that one billion members of Commonwealth countries are under the age of 25.

According to polls carried out in Britain, however, many young people do not think the Commonwealth is important or relevant. Possibly in an attempt to appeal to younger people, the Westminster Abbey Twitter page was giving frequent updates during the service.
