Orange Order Congratulates Queen on Milestone Birthday

The Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland has offered its congratulations and best wishes to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth on the occasion of her 90th birthday.

Grand Master Edward Stevenson, said: “On behalf of the Orange Institution, I would like to offer our warmest congratulations to Her Majesty on reaching such a momentous milestone.

“It is a magnificent accomplishment for the United Kingdom’s longest reigning monarch who has devoted her entire life to the service of her country and the Commonwealth.

“Since ascending the throne over six decades ago, Queen Elizabeth’s extraordinary dedication, faith and unfailing sense of duty have been incomparable, acting always in the best interests of her subjects.

“Her Majesty’s grace, wisdom and charm have endeared the public and an entire nation; none more so than here in Northern Ireland where she is held in the highest of esteem and affection.”

Mr Stevenson, who will attend a parade in London in June marking the Queen’s official birthday, said the monarch was an “inspiration” and a “leadership icon” for the rest of the world.

He added: “With God’s blessing, we pray she will continue in her role as Head of State, setting an example to us all and playing a constant role in our national life.”
