Queen says no to jubilee invite

Have your say

THE Queen has “politely declined” an invitation from a Sheffield town council to attend its Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Stocksbridge Town Council invited her to their special programme of activities on Monday, June 4, to mark the anniversary which will finish with a Last Night of the Proms concert at the town’s Venue.

Teresa Bisatt, council clerk, said: “We had a nice reply from the Queen’s secretary politely declining the invitation saying the Queen had prior engagements on that day.”
