On 6th February 2022, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms, and the Commonwealth.

Events and initiatives will take place in a special four-day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June to celebrate this anniversary. 

The four days of celebrations will include public events and community activities and national moments of reflection on The Queen’s 70 years of service.

Why is Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee so significant?

When the Queen reached 70 years on the throne on February 6, 2022, she became the first British monarch ever to make it to a Platinum Jubilee.

She had already broken the record of the longest-reigning British monarch back in September 2015 when she overtook Queen Victoria who reigned for 63 years 216 days.

The Queen is one of only six British monarchs to reach a Golden Jubilee of 50 years on the throne.
