Games and Learning The Queen's Life

The Jubilee Time Capsule

The Queen was presented with a collection of more than 37,000 ‘moving moments’ to mark her 60 years on the throne in the form of a Diamond Jubilee Time Capsule

Contributors from across the Commonwealth were asked to submit their most significant memories from the past 60 years to create a picture of life in the Commonwealth since 1952.

The memories, submitted online through the time capsule website, have been collated in a physical capsule which will go on permanent display as part of the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle.

The Royal Commonwealth Society’s project culminated in The Queen’s visit to the organisation’s headquarters inLondonwhere Her Majesty toured the building, viewed a slide show of time capsule entries and met participants before being presented with the capsule.

Up to 80,000 videos, pictures and text make up the time capsule and it includes contributions for Prince Harry, David Cameron and Olympics and Paralympics runner Oscar Pistorius.
