The States of Guernsey (the Guernsey Government) has approved the recent proposal to declare Monday, June 5, 2012, as a one-off public holiday to commemorate Queen Elisabeth's Diamond Jubilee.
Last month (2011-06-19), Guernsey and Alderney's Commerce and Employment Department had announced that the States of Guernsey (Guernsey's Parliament) would soon be asked to declare Monday, June 5, 2012, as a one-off public holiday to commemorate Queen Elisabeth's Diamond Jubilee.
The States of Guernsey also approved moving the May public holiday from Monday, May 28, to Monday, June 4, 2012, as was done in the UK (2009-12-27).
Currently, the following countries have declared a one-off public holiday to commemorate the royal diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the throne: The UK (2009-12-27), the Isle of Man (2010-09-10), Jersey (2010-09-29), and the Cayman Islands (2011-07-20). Note that, in some cases the additional 2012 public holiday is declared on Monday, June 4, 2012, and in other cases on Tuesday, June 5, 2012, depending if the last Monday of May is an annual public holiday.
