This month marks 70 years since our reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, first became queen. She is the first British monarch to take such a step.

The Platinum Jubilee officially falls on February 6, but celebrations marking this historic event will take place throughout the year, culminating in a four-day UK bank holiday weekend.

While Saturday February 6 technically marks the date the Queen ascended the throne, it is also the anniversary of the death of her father, King George VI, and is therefore known as a date the Queen does not don’t want to celebrate.

Instead, the Platinum Jubilee will take place on Friday, June 3, 2022, as will the Queen’s Golden and Diamond Jubilees, with the summer month additionally offering a better chance of good weather.

Will there be an additional holiday?

Britons will indeed benefit from an additional public holiday in 2022 in honor of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

It was announced in 2021 by the government that 2022 would see an additional public holiday, from Thursday June 2 to Sunday June 5.

A tweet from the Royal Family’s official Twitter account said: “The extended bank holiday weekend will see public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflection on the Queen’s 70 years of service.”

What events will take place?

The Queen’s Birthday Parade, also known as Trooping the Colour, will take place, with over 1,400 marching soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians joining in the traditional parade to mark the Queen’s official birthday.

Starting at Buckingham Palace, the parade will descend from the Mall to the Palace of the Horse Guards, joined by members of the Royal Family on horseback and carriages.

The parade will end with the traditional RAF flyby, watched by the Queen and the Royal Family from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

Trooping the Color will be streamed live, but if you would like to attend the event in person, tickets have been made available for the week of January 17, 2022. You can apply via the army website.

Also on Thursday June 2, the long-standing British tradition of celebrating royal jubilees, weddings and coronations with the lighting of beacons will take place to mark the Platinum Jubilee.

A thanksgiving service for the Queen’s reign will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral, with further details and events to be announced.

The Queen, accompanied by members of the Royal Family, will attend the Derby at Epsom Downs.

Always on Saturday, it’s the “Platinum Party at the Palace”. The BBC will stage and broadcast a special concert live from Buckingham Palace, which will bring together some of the world’s biggest names in entertainment to celebrate the Queen’s seven-decade reign.

Every year since the idea was launched in 2009, The Big Jubilee Lunch encourages communities to celebrate their connections and get to know each other better, in the spirit of fun and friendship.

In 2022, the Big Jubilee Lunch will bring Jubilee celebrations to the heart of every community.
