Your celebration

The King and Governor-General will send a message for a centenary birthday and the Prime Minister will send a message to those turning 90 or more. The Prime Minister and the Governor-General can write again every year and The King every five years on request. The Prime Minister and Governor-General send messages for 50th wedding and subsequent anniversaries. The King honours couples celebrating 60 years of marriage and will afterwards write every five years on request.

Arranging the message

Indi residents can request an anniversary message by completing the form on this page as a first step. You will then be asked to provide birth and marriage certificates, or a statutory declaration if these are not available.

You have only to make a single application. This will be sent to the Prime Minister’s Office, Premier’s Office and forwarded, where appropriate, to the Governor-General and The King.


Arrangements for anniversary messages can be made two months in advance of your celebration. You can also request belated messages.

Receiving messages

Anniversary messages can be delivered to the recipient or to another address for surprises.
