Celebrating The Queens Jubilee – The Early Years

By Laura O'Sullivan

Today marks the first day of The Queens Jubilee weekend

On 6th February this year 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.

To celebrate this unprecedented anniversary, events and initiatives will take place throughout the year, culminating in a four day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June. 

The four days of celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflection on The Queen’s 70 years of service. 

Here, we explore Her Majesty The Queen through the early years.
