British Embassy Hosts Queen’s Birthday Party at Radisson
The 6th of June is H.M. British Queen’s Birthday, which was also celebrated in Tbilisi at Radisson Blu Iveria hotel by the British Embassy. Other celebrations worldwide congratulated Her Majesty and the event was screened on special monitor. British Ambassador David Moran hosted an imposing and colourful party to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation.
The reception was attended by Georgian Ministers, parliamentarians, government officials, members of the diplomatic corps, members of the British community in Georgia and
civil society representatives.
Speaking about the occasion, Ambassador Moran said:”This year we mark the Sixtieth Anniversary of Her Majesty’s Coronation. This remarkable day is being celebrated by British citizens all over the world - including, I am pleased to say, Georgia. It is an honour to serve here as Britain’s representative at this important time in Georgia’s history. My Embassy will continue to do all we can, to deepen the excellent bilateral relations between our two countries.”
The party was opened by Royal Marines Band’s traditional ritual – the program designed especially for Georgia. “We are also privileged to be hosting Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Portsmouth Band ‘The Royal Band’ for the first time in Georgia,” H.E. Mr. Moran commented.
The origins of Royal Marines Band in the Portsmouth area can be traced back to the middle of the 18th Century. The present band is a direct descendant of the Band of the Royal Marines Artillery, formed in January 1861. In addition to their musical and ceremonial duties, Royal Marines Musicians and Buglers continue to carry out their secondary roles in operations around the world.
2012 has become one of the busiest years for the Royal Band. They performed during Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee celebration, all in addition to its usual workload of military parades, regimental dinners and concerts.
Georgian Journal talked to Mrs. Ines Merabishvili, Director of Byron Society and frequent guest to Great Britain: “For the first time in Georgia, Queen’s Birthday was marked by Stephen Ash in 1996”, she recalled. “During one of my visits to Great Britain on behalf of Byron Society in Georgia, I was making a report in Germany. Accidentally, I met one of the Queen’s friends and told her about our celebrations and she said that she would by all means pass this message to the Queen with whom reportedly she had a cup of tea quite often. Since then, we have a pleasure to be celebrating this day here in Georgia.”
Sheenagh Denson, a tourist from Great Britain, who was invited by the Ambassador to the party at the occasional meeting at the embassy, said: “It’s a happy accident that we are here at the party together with my friends, as it was not planned. This afternoon we visited Public Services Building – it’s amazing; the architecture is fantastic.”
As H.E Mr. David Moran noted, traditional Queen’s Birthday parties include no speeches. Therefore, he did not make any opening speech. He invited the guests to enjoy the best of the British Music that was played live, a variety of Scotch Whiskey, traditional dishes and, what’s more, dances. His Excellency and his spouse opened the dancing ball and soon Georgians and Britons joined them. The party proved to be long, cheerful and as pleasant as the British people are.
