The Platinum Jubilee marks the first time in history that a monarch has ruled for seven decades.

Organisers said it was a way for the country to celebrate the Queen’s “constant, courageous and committed presence”.

Other previously announced plans include a two extra bank holidays at the start of June for a four-day weekend celebration.

Major cities will be lighting beacons to mark the event.

Who are these ‘organisers’ of the Platinum Jubilee event?

Producer and Director, Simon Brooks-Ward, said the Queen has been involved in shaping the plans.

She “wants to know exactly what’s going on within the celebration”, he said.

He also noted that they “miss enormously” the Duke of Edinburgh’s contribution to the horse show.

Prince Philip, who used to give feedback and “suggestions” to the organisers, is expected to be appropriately commemorated as it will be the first big royal jubilee without him.

Brooks-Ward called the event “light-hearted and joyful but also traditional and respectful”.

Will Harry and Meghan be there?

Whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s paths will cross with Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s is one question is unknown.
