The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Queen starts baton relay for 2022 Commonwealth Games” – below is their description.
The Queen has held her first major event at Buckingham Palace since the pandemic began, launching the Commonwealth Games 2022 baton on a global relay.
Paralympic gold medallist Kadeena Cox was given the honour of taking the baton on the first leg of its 90,000-mile journey which will lead to the opening ceremony in the host city Birmingham.
The Queen handed the symbol for the “friendly games” to four-time Paralympic champion Cox – who won two gold medals at Rio 2016 and two at Tokyo 2020 – after a message to the athletes and the Commonwealth was inserted into the baton.
