Queen’s service life to inspire young writers in the Commonwealth Essay Competition
The Queen’s ‘inspiring’ 70 years of service is the focus of this year’s Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition.
Former Spice Girl Geri Horner, children’s book author David Walliams and the Duchess of Cornwall recorded a video message to start the writing challenge.
Horner, an Ambassador for the Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS), said: “The seven decades of service to the Queen are an inspiring example of the contribution we can all make to our communities.”
Walliams added the theme was “‘Our Commonwealth’ centered on serving by the Queen’s example”.
Camilla, RCS Vice Patron, said she is delighted to present the 2022 competition, adding: “Your powerful stories, essays, poems and letters from across the Commonwealth always bring us together as a community.”
Last year’s junior winner, Ethan-Charles Mufuma from Uganda, invited young people to “write about the value of service to our communities” wherever they are in the Commonwealth.
The Queen, who is also the Head of the Commonwealth, celebrated her Platinum Jubilee in February, becoming the first British sovereign to celebrate 70 years on the throne.
