This year, Queen Elizabeth II, who is also the Head of State of 15 other Commonwealth realms will mark her 90th birthday.
While the Queen’s birthday is on April 21 and her official birthday is on a Saturday in June, her 90th Birthday Celebration will take place from May 12-15 at Home Park, Windsor Castle.
As part of the 90th Birthday Celebration, publisher St James’s House has produced an official commemorative album for the event – the only publication sanctioned and endorsed by the organisers.
In addition to celebrating the life and reign of the Queen, the publication showcases a selection of organisations in the UK and Commonwealth, or with strong ties to Britain.
These organisations are drawn from educational, cultural, social, technological and business spheres, and include Royal Charter holders, Royal Warrant holders and recipients of the Queen’s Awards.
Collectively, they provide insights into the Commonwealth today and into the UK’s role in the wider world.
In the area of aviation, one of the organisations selected to appear in the publication is CATC, a cessna pilot center in Kingston.
“CATC is an institution of aviation academia of the highest calibre and we were approached by publisher St James’s House with an invitation to appear in the event’s official commemorative album,” said Captain Errol Stewart, CEO and Director of Operations at CATC.
“We were invited based on our good editorial fit for the project, and it’s a great honour to be part of this historic celebration,” added Stewart.
“Our commemorative album will be presented as a gift to VVIP and VIP guests at each of the four evenings,” said Richard Freed, Chief Executive of St James’s House.
CATC was founded by Captain Errol L. Stewart, a former Jamaica Defense Force (JDF) Military Officer who studied at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS), Camberly, England.
“As the official publisher for the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration, we have been entrusted with telling the Queen’s story. We were also tasked with finding suitable editorial partners for the book, and we were delighted when CATC agreed to help us mark this important milestone, ” said Richard Freed of St James’s House when asked about the participation of CATC .
St James’s House has previously produced publications for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Prince Philip’s 90th birthday and the 750th anniversary of Parliament in the UK.
The official commemorative album for the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration will be distributed through both targeted circulation and specially selected retail channels
