On the 10 June 2016 His Grace Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, attended the national service of thanksgiving in honour of Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday. Held in St Paul's Cathedral, the service included a number of Christian hymns, prayers, Biblical readings, addresses and reflections. It was attended by over 2000 people, including members of the Royal Family, senior politicians, faith leaders and hundreds of members of the public nominated by government departments in recognition of their service. Bishop Angaelos, along with a number of faith leaders, took part in special prayers during the service for Her Majesty The Queen, who became Britain’s longest reigning monarch in 2015.
