The Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee 4 day weekend:
The usual May Bank Holiday has been moved forward to Thursday 2 June 2022. On Friday 3 June 2022, there will be an extra Bank Holiday granted to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. This means there is a four day weekend starting today, Thursday 2nd June.
Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-ruling monarch in British history, was crowned when she was 25 years old. In the next seven decades, the U.K. navigated the end of its empire, the Cold War, the economic tensions of the 1980s and the challenges of an increasingly multicultural society. Now 96, her unprecedented reign has made her a symbol of stability as the United Kingdom navigated an age of uncertainty.
The U.K. is marking the queen’s jubilee June 2-June 5. Behind the brass bands, street parties and a planned appearance by the aging queen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace lies a drive to show that the royal family still remains relevant.
