14th July 2019 went down as an incredible day in the history of England cricket as they lifted their maiden World Cup trophy in an unbelievable thriller at Lord's against New Zealand.
Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms congratulated England on behalf of the Royal Family and her husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
"Prince Philip and I send our warmest congratulations to the England Men’s Cricket team after such a thrilling victory in today’s World Cup Final", Her Majesty dictated. She also empathized with the New Zealand cricket team and said.
“I also extend my commiserations to the runners-up New Zealand, who competed so admirably in today’s contest and throughout the tournament".
