Rishi Sunak, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, addressed the following message: Hello everybody! This has been an extraordinary year. From Stanley to Portsmouth, we honored those who fought to keep the Falklands free 40 years ago. We remembered those who lost their lives, we celebrated the moment when the Union Jack was raised at Government House once again, and we pledged our continued commitment to your self-determination.
2022 has been a momentous and busy year here in this newly created City of Stanley and across the Islands, marking the 40th anniversary of the liberation of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia with a fitting and often moving program of commemorative events, events that have at their heart been about remembrance, community, and sharing.

British Prime Minister David Cameron delivers his Christmas message to the people of the Falkland Islands: 2012 has been a memorable year for all of us. It’s been a year of happy celebrations but a year of more sober commemorations too. In London and Stanley, we celebrated the Diamond Jubilee, marking the 60th year of Her Majesty the Queen’s reign. The genuine and deep affection for Her Majesty both here and in the Falklands reminded us of the ties that bind us together.
