The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations program in full

We’re less than three months away from one of the biggest celebrations the UK has ever seen as the finishing touches are applied to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Her Majesty’s big moment is set to be the largest event ever held in Britain – with an eye-popping budget of around £15million.

In early June, the four-day Bank Holiday extravaganza will bring the country to a stand-still as everyone raises a glass to the Monarch, marking 70 years of service to her people.

Fittingly, the milestone will be marked in sensational style – and there’s no doubt the Queen needs the special celebration after a very demanding 12 months, one royal experts believes.

Analyst Jonathan Sacerdoti told the Mirrror : “There is very little doubt that she is looking forward to her Platinum Jubilee enormously. Like most of us, I’m sure she can’t wait.

“While it certainly doesn’t put away the problems she has had over a past year, she will also know that no time is perfect – the Queen is a very pragmatic person.

“I think the most important thing is that she is healthy and can enjoy her celebrations with her family.

“It’s hard to believe it’s less than three months away, and she will be determined to make the absolute most of it.

“One of the real benefits of the Royal Family is that they give us light in even the darkest moments. What with the pandemic and the on-going conflict in Ukraine, this is one of the toughest periods in living memory.

“It’s a great opportunity to celebrate her wonderful service and for the world to come together.”

If anyone deserves an incredible celebration to remember, it’s the Queen.

In one of her most testing periods ever on the throne, she last year said goodbye to her beloved husband Prince Philip as her son Prince Andrew faced allegations of sexual assault.

She is also still dealing with a family fall out following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s controversial decision to quit the UK and step back from royal duties.

The historic and unprecedented anniversary for the 95-year-old will capture the attention across the globe, and there’s so much to look forward to.

It won’t be a surprise to learn of Her Majesty’s excitement for her Platinum Jubilee this summer.

Buckingham Palace has unveiled the full program of events and there’s not long to wait.

But the world is ready to pay tribute, and the weeks are ticking down.

Celebrations will include her Majesty opening her private estates to the public and some of the world’s biggest stars performing outside her iconic headquarters.

It’s going to be puddings, parties, parades and pageants, in honor of the jubilee.

There are events popping up over the next few months but the excitement really begins to build on May 12.
