To mark 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, special Diamond Jubilee celebrations will take place over a ‘four day’ weekend between Saturday 2 June and Tuesday 5 June 2012.
A Diamond Jubilee has only ever been celebrated in the UK once before – Queen Victoria, who reigned for more than 60 years, celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in 1897.
Queen Elizabeth II came to the throne on 6 February 1952, and The Coronation took place on 2 June 1953.
Watch this space for further details about The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the many activities and events due to take place!
