The following people will be eligible for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal:
Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport, Jeremy Hunt, said: “The Queen has dedicated her life to the service of this country and the Diamond Jubilee will offer us all the opportunity to celebrate the commitment, loyalty and faithfulness with which she has led the country across the last sixty years. It is right that we reward those people who, like The Queen, also dedicate their lives to public good and who represent the very best of the British spirit.
“I hope the official medal will serve as a mark of thanks to all those who give so much in the name of society and public service and I extend my congratulations to all the recipients.”
The medals will be awarded during the first half of 2012.
