Doha College showcased in album  for Queen’s birthday celebration

In 2016, Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, who is also the Head of State of 15 other Commonwealth realms, will mark her 90th birthday on 21 April, and Doha College has been chosen as one of the organisations to be featured in the official commemorative publication for The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration at Windsor Castle.
While The Queen’s actual birthday is on 21 April and her official birthday is on a Saturday in June, The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration will take place from 12 to 15 May 2016 in Home Park, Windsor Castle, and will celebrate The Queen’s life, her dedication to the Commonwealth and international affairs, her involvement with the armed forces and her love of horses.
As part of these celebrations, publisher St James’s House has produced an official commemorative album for the event – the only publication sanctioned and endorsed by the organisers.
“Our commemorative album will be presented as a gift to VVIP and VIP guests at each of the four evenings,” says Richard Freed, Chief Executive of St James’s House. “Copies of the book will also be distributed to key figures and organisations around the world including heads of state, ambassadors and leaders of industry.”


In the area of British education, one of the organisations selected to appear in the publication is Doha College.  
“Doha College is considered a beacon of excellence here in the Middle East and we were approached by publisher St James’s House with an invitation to appear in the event’s official commemorative album,” says Dr Steffen Sommer, Principal. “We were invited based on our good editorial fit for the project, and it’s a great honour to be part of this historic celebration.”
Asked about the participation of Doha College, Richard Freed of St James’s House says: “As the official publisher for The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration, we have been entrusted with telling the Queen’s story. We were also tasked with finding suitable editorial partners for the book, and we were delighted when Doha College agreed to help us mark this important milestone.”
