This month marks 70 years since our reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, first became queen. She is the first British monarch to reach such a milestone.

The Platinum Jubilee officially falls on 6 February but celebrations mark the historic event will be held throughout the year, culminating in a four day UK bank holiday weekend.

While Saturday 6 February technically marks the date that the Queen ascended to the throne, it also is the anniversary of the death of her father, King George VI, and therefore is known as a date the Queen does not wish to celebrate.
