Celebrations for the Queen’s Birthday

Notice Board 08/06/2017

The Cayman Islands will celebrate Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II’s official birthday on Saturday, 17 June 2017. A parade by the uniformed services will precede a brief ceremony at the Legislative Assembly recognising past and current recipients of Queen’s Honours. The parade and ceremony start at 9 a.m., so guests and the general public should be in place by 8.30 a.m. In the event of inclement weather the ceremony will take place inside the George Town Town Hall starting at 10 a.m.

Best known as the “Father of the Immigration Board” and for his generous contributions to the Cayman Islands community Charles Wesley Watler is the sole recipient of the Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) award.

Mr. Philip Rankine will be honoured with the Cayman Islands Certificate and Badge of Honour for his services to the financial services industry, and in particular the Board of Cayman Airways.

The annual Garden Party will be held from 10.00 a.m. on the front lawn of the Governor’s residence, Government House.  In keeping with tradition, the Garden Party is open to the public. There will be entertainment with light food and drinks.

Officials note that a dress code of semi-formal daywear (or your Sunday best) is enforced for these celebrations. Hats are optional.

“These Ceremonies represent one of the undisputed highlights of the islands’ social calendar,” said Meloney Syms, head of the Protocol Office.

“It will be an opportunity for everyone to pay the respects to our Queen and to celebrate the achievements of our homegrown role models Mr. Watler and Mr. Rankine. Both are prominent members of our society and are deserving of these honours.”

The Queen’s Birthday Celebrations are organised annually by the Protocol Office. For general event queries, please contact 244-3612 or nationalevents@gov.ky.
