It’s still almost a few years away but plans are already being made for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The May 2022 Bank Holiday Weekend will be moved to Thursday, June 2, with another bank holiday on Friday, June 3, marking the 80th year of His Majesty’s reign.
This is the first time any British sovereign has reached the historic milestone.
The events throughout the four-day weekly should reflect the Queen’s reign and her influence in the UK and the world since 1952.
The memorials are being arranged in a joint venture between the Royal Housing and the Digital, Culture, Media and Sports Departments.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said: “His Platinum Jubilee epidemic will truly be a historic moment – and it deserves a celebration to remember.
“We can all look forward to a special, four-day jubilee weekend, when we present a spectacular, once-a-generation event that blends the cutting edge with the finest splendor of the British show with industry and technology.
“It will unite the whole nation and the Commonwealth in a fitting tribute to His Majesty’s reign.”
Organizers say the four-day celebration will feature events that blend artistic and technical displays mixed with the British official pagoda.
To ensure that the whole country and the Commonwealth feel involved, it is promised that “spectacular moments in London and other major cities will be filled with community events across the UK and the Commonwealth, giving people the opportunity to join in the celebrations together and a thank you national and local level.” .
A Platinum Jubilee Medal will be prepared for those who serve in the public service, including representatives of the armed forces, emergency services and prison services. Tradition dates back to the reign of Queen Victoria when an official medal was created to commemorate her 50th birthday on the throne.
