Dame Menna said recently of the Queen’s 70 years on the throne: “It is a great honour to serve as ambassador to Her Majesty in France, and I warmly congratulate Her Majesty on the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee, an incredible milestone.

“This summer’s celebrations are a chance to celebrate the long-standing links between Her Majesty and France and the rich shared history of our countries, and to look ahead to the future as close neighbours and global partners, taking up together our shared challenges.”
