Happy Commonwealth Day! – But What’s It All About?


Every year on the second Monday in March, 54 countries join together in celebration of the links they share as members of one diverse and dynamic global family – the modern Commonwealth.

In the UK, one way in which this special day is celebrated is with a unique event in London’s Westminster Abbey coordinated by the Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS). The UK’s largest multi-faith celebration, the Commonwealth Day Observance is attended by Her Majesty The Queen, the Prime Minister, High Commissioners, up to 200 other VIPs and more than 1,000 schoolchildren.

The Commonwealth Day Observance takes a different theme each year. And in 2017 we are celebrating ‘‘a peace-building commonwealth.’
