60 years marks the queen’s diamond jubilee. Jubilee’s take place on special years since the coronation, when queen Elizabeth took on the honour and pressure of being England’s monarch. As well as monarch for the whole of the commonwealth too.
The coronation was in 1953 but actually she became queen in 1952 the moment her father died.
Sunday 5th June 2022 marks the platinum jubilee when street parties will grace this land and we will celebrate something we don’t fully understand. It has been 10 years or 520 weeks between the golden and platinum jubilee. We remember Union Jack battenburgs and learning the word ‘bunting’. I’m sure there will be plenty more to say after the big day including the new, but weird, trifle designed for the big day…lemon Swiss roll and amaretti trifle.
