On Monday the Royal family attended a service to mark Commonwealth Day, during which the Queen praised the 'Commonwealth connection' which makes diversity 'a cause for celebration'.

The Queen, who is head of the Commonwealth, said: 'Through exchanging ideas, and seeing life from other perspectives, we grow in understanding and work more collaboratively towards a common future.

'There is a very special value in the insights we gain through the Commonwealth connection; shared inheritances help us overcome difference so that diversity is a cause for celebration rather than division.'
