Her Majesty started off with immense gratitude of calling her to all the opening ceremonies held at the CHOGM meets, and it felt more special as it was held at the Buckingham Palace.
The speech continued in this way -
"It was in the year 1952 when my father had a meeting with the Government Head and they confirmed the London Declaration which then led to the formation CommonWealth Games as it is now known to people. Currently, we all are the biggest convening powers in the world and it is getting stronger every year. It feels great to be part of different initiatives like the Commonwealth Canopy, Commonwealth Blue Charter, Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust.
Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust is offering eye-treatment solutions to millions of the people. This is only possible with the cooperation and generosity of the nations who are part of us today.
Also, it feels great to see the young minds joining with our initiatives with the help of the technology. It feels immense pleasure and honor in serving as the Head of the Commonwealth Games with pride and satisfaction. It will be my wish that Commonwealth will keep offering the stability and continuity to the coming generation."
While ending the CHOGM meeting at Buckingham speech, she mentioned another thing about deciding Prince of Wales to take charge of the Commonwealth and carry on the work started by her father in the year 1949.
