Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall, Vice-President of the Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS), was joined by RCS Ambassadors Geri Horner and David Walliams to launch the Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition 2022.

The Duchess, who was also joined at the video launch by junior winner of the 2021 pageant, Ethan-Charles Mufuma, from Uganda, and junior runner-up, Raisa Gulati, from India, said:

“As Vice-President of the Royal Commonwealth Society, I am delighted to announce the launch of the 2022 competition. Your powerful stories, essays, poetry and letters from across the Commonwealth never fail to bring us together as a community. I look forward to reading this year’s winning entries and encourage you all to think and write.”

Speaking on the theme for 2022, ‘Our Commonwealth’, RCS Ambassador David Walliams encouraged young people to explore ‘the importance of service, following the Queen’s example’. “The Queen’s seven decades of service are an inspiring example of the contribution we can all make to our communities,” said RCS Ambassador Geri Horner, while Ethan-Charles invited young people to “write on the value of serving our communities”, wherever they are in the Commonwealth.

Dr Linda Yueh, President of the Royal Commonwealth Society, said:

“The Society is extremely proud to run the Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition, the oldest school writing competition in the world, and is grateful for the unwavering support of our Vice-President, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall. In 2022, in her Platinum Jubilee Year, the Society’s Patron, Her Majesty The Queen, will celebrate 70 years at the helm of the Commonwealth. The Queen’s seven decades of service to the Commonwealth are an inspiring example of the unwavering commitment and important contribution we can all make to our societies. This year, the contest asks participants to explore the positive impact that can be achieved through selfless dedication and commitment to our Commonwealth family.
