Diamond Jubilee: Queen honours Wales' ''remarkable spirit'


The Queen has paid tribute to the people of Wales for their "remarkable spirit" and praised their "fortitude and resilience".

She gave the speech after meeting former steel workers at a newly-refurbished works general office and archives in Ebbw Vale.

They also attended a service at the town's Christ Church and met community groups at a reception.

The tribute came on the second, and final, day of her two-day Wales tour as part of her Diamond Jubilee.
