Royal fans, prepare yourselves — the world’s most well known aristocratic family are set to reunite with a fizz, a bang, and a whole lot of pomp. Plans for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 are already underway, and Buckingham Palace have shared an update on what we can expect for the momentous and history-making occasion.
Announced on Instagram, The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which marks 70 years since the Queen’s accession to the throne, will be celebrated from Thursday June 2 to Sunday June 5 next year.
Over the course of the long weekend, events will include the annual Trooping the Colour, the Lighting of the Platinum Jubilee Beacons, a Service at St. Paul’s Cathedral, a live concert at Buckingham Palace, a Jubilee lunch and, just to top it off, a Jubilee Pageant.
Yes, we’re also speechless at the list — they really are going all out!
Let’s just take a moment to process all of this.
Firstly, Trooping the Colour will no doubt be an incredible moment of fanfare for the royals, who have had to scale back the pomp-filled event for the last two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
With hope, the restrictions will be significantly less by June 2022, so hopefully we see it back in all its glory.
Next up, we’d like to address this live concert, named Platinum Party at the Buckingham Palace. If that’s not a party we would give an arm and leg to attend we don’t know what is.
And don’t even get us started on this Platinum Jubilee Pageant.
Honestly, we’re probably going to combust or burst into confetti throughout the four day duration — this is truly the ultimate royal extravaganza.
Another point to note is the very likely feat that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will return to the UK to celebrate with Queen Elizabeth and the family. And yes, this means they’ll get to hang out with Kate Middleton and Prince William of course — and perhaps we’ll even get a glimpse of the two Sussex kids, Archie and a soon-to-be baby girl!
Yep, we’ll just be over here mentally preparing ourselves for a royally perfect feast for the eyes. See you there…
