The Queen's Platinum Jubilee
The Queen's Platimun Jubilee
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.
The Queen officially made it to 70 years on the throne on Accession Day which fell on Sunday, February 6. It is the date on which the Queen acceded to the throne on the death of her father, George VI, in 1952.
The Queen usually spends the February anniversary in private reflection on the Sandringham estate, thinking of her late father. This year, in the days leading up to Accession Day, she invited local community groups and volunteers to Sandringham for cake, and viewed a selection of Jubilee memorabilia. In a written message marking the occasion, she told her people: "It gives me pleasure to renew to you the pledge I gave in 1947 that my life will always be devoted to your service.
The Queen's coronation took place on June 2, 1953, at Westminster Abbey in London.
God Bless The Queen
