Publisher St James’s House produced the album, which was presented as a gift to VIP guests at the May celebration at Windsor Castle, as well as to key figures and organizations around the world, including heads of state, ambassadors and leaders of industry.
The May event celebrated the queen’s life, her dedication to the Commonwealth and international affairs, her involvement with the armed forces and her love of horses.
In addition to commemorating the life and reign of the queen, the book showcases a selection of organizations in the Commonwealth, or with strong ties to Britain. These organizations were drawn from educational, cultural, social, technological and business spheres and include Royal Charter holders, Royal Warrant holders and recipients of the Queen’s Awards. Collectively, they provide insights into the Commonwealth today and into the U.K.’s role in the wider world.
“Harrison Spinks has a strong heritage in manufacturing luxury beds, and we were approached by publisher St James’s House with an invitation to appear in the event’s official commemorative album,” said Simon Spinks, managing director of Harrison Spinks. “We were invited based on our good editorial fit for the project, and it’s a great honor to be part of this historic celebration.”
