After the lockdown blues, the UK will ‘burst into life’ for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – ‘Fun!’
According to a royal expert, QUEEN ELIZABETH’S Platinum Jubilee is a “opportunity to have fun” and will help the populace to “burst into life” after facing the restraints of lockdown.
Her Majesty, who ascended to the throne on February 6, 1952, will mark 70 years of service next year. To commemorate the historic occasion, celebrations have been held across the country. As part of the festivities, members of the Royal Family will travel around the United Kingdom to participate in a range of engagements.
An extended bank holiday has also been authorized, letting people to enjoy the historic occasion in style from Thursday, June 2nd to Sunday, June 5th.
Hugo Vickers, a historian, feels the Platinum Jubilee will be the ideal remedy to the lockdown blues.
“It’s such a great opportunity to have a good time, to honor the Queen, and to enjoy it,” he remarked.
“Over the course of the year, the Queen herself will do roughly ten major things.
“A Platinum Jubilee has never been seen before. It will be enormously significant, in my opinion.”
“Hopefully, by the time it comes around, people will be more enthusiastic about coming,” he continued.
“They’ll have been shut up for around two years and will suddenly spring to life.”
Beacons will be illuminated around the UK, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, and UK Overseas Territories as part of the celebrations, as is customary.
They will, however, be lit for the first time in each of the Commonwealth countries’ capital cities.
A spectacular live concert from Buckingham Palace will be staged and aired by the BBC, bringing together some of the world’s finest entertainment personalities.
The public will be able to purchase tickets through a poll, the specifics of which will be disclosed by the Palace in due time.
A pageant with 5,000 people from the UK and Commonwealth countries will also take place.
Street arts, drama, music, circus, carnival, and costume will all be included.
