Madam President has written to Her Majesty The Queen congratulating her on the occasion of her becoming the longest serving Lord of Mann. Earlier this week the length of Her Majesty’s reign overtook that of Queen Victoria. As the date of 9th September 2015 approached, the Hon Clare Christian MLC wrote: “Over the last 63 years there have been many changes in the Isle of Man and elsewhere, but you have remained as a guide and exemplar to us all. Please be assured of the deep affection and respect for you on our Island.”
Her Majesty was proclaimed as Lord of Man at a special sitting of Tynwald at St John’s on 12th February 1952 following the death of her father, King George VI, on 6th February 1952. Her Majesty presided over Tynwald Court at St John’s on 5th July 1979 and 7th July 2003.
