About the Platinum Jubilee
What is a Platinum Jubilee?
The platinum jubilee is the 70th anniversary. This year, the Queen is set to become the first British Monarch to celebrate a platinum Jubilee in June 2nd-5th, 2022.
Why is the Platinum Jubilee in June 2022?
The jubilee this year is in June, as this marks the anniversary of King George VI’s death, Queen Elizabeth II’s father. Therefore, she’s been the reigning monarch since 1952.
Will there be a bank holiday for the Platinum Jubilee 2022?
Yes, from Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June there will be a 4-day bank holiday weekend to celebrate the Queen’s platinum jubilee. So the country will get 2 days off of work to commemorate the occasion.
How should you celebrate the Platinum Jubilee 2022?
Main events to celebrate the jubilee with the royal family are listed here, including a parade, party at the palace, a thanksgiving service, and a pageant. Country wide, the jubilee beacons will be lit and on Sunday communities are encouraged to come together for the ‘Big Jubilee Lunch’. So whether you’re planning a street party or picnic, we’d suggest a refreshing gin and tonic to add to your celebration.
