Information published on using Royal names and titles

People hoping to name community events, buildings or projects in honour of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee can now apply for permission.

Applications have opened for the commemorative use of Royal names and titles for the event, which takes place next year.

There will be a blanket approval for the phrases “Diamond Jubilee” and “Jubilee” providing they are used for non-commerical purposes.

However phrases such as “Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee” or “The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee” will need permission.

The rules for the use of Royal names and titles were also relaxed prior to the Golden Jubilee in 2002.
