The Forests of Inverness - 10

Here we see The Princess Royal - HRH Princes Anne - meeting workers in Culloden Forest.

Today we celebrate the 61st Anniversary of the Accession of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Great God,
whose Son Jesus looks after us,
we thank you for our wonderful Queen.
On this special day,
please give her love, joy and peace
as she does what you ask her to do
and looks after us her people;
through Jesus Christ who loves us all. Amen.

God save our gracious Queen,
long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
happy and glorious,
long to reign over us,
God save the Queen!

Thy choicest gifts in store
on her be pleased to pour,
long may she reign:
may she defend our laws,
and ever give us cause
to sing with heart and voice
God save the Queen!

Guns were fired from Edinburgh Castle earlier today to salute Her Majesty on this special day.

The Queen spent the day quietly at Sandringham - where her father died 61 years ago today.
