Britain plans a weekend holiday to commemorate the Queen’s 70 years in power

Britain will hold military parades, neighborhood gatherings and competitions to make new desserts for the Platinum Jubilee to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne

Elizabeth will become the first British monarch to reign for seven years on February 6, and the anniversary celebrations will culminate in a four-day weekend event from June 2 to 5. After the doctor recently advised her to take more rest, it is not clear what activities the 95-year-old queen will participate in.

The weekend, including an additional public holiday to commemorate the Queen, will begin on Thursday, June 2, the military parade-the annual military parade, marking the Queen’s official birthday.

Later Thanksgiving will be held on June 3 to honor the Queen’s service to Britain, her other kingdoms and the Commonwealth.

To pay tribute to the Coronation Chicken-a mixture of cold chicken, curry powder, mayonnaise and other ingredients at the garden party that marks the Queen’s official enthronement-the palace will sponsor a platinum pudding competition to create a new dessert dedicated to the monarch.

The competition will be open to British residents as young as 8 years old, with TV culinary celebrities Mary Berry and Monica Galetti and Buckingham Palace chef Mark Flanagan as judges. The winning recipe will be released before Jubilee weekend, so it can be part of the celebration.

Approximately 1,400 people have already registered for the Jubilee Luncheon on June 5th. The flagship event will be held in the Eden Project in London and Cornwall.The palace expects approximately 200,000 community events in the UK

The weekend will end with a grand event celebrating the service of the monarch and looking forward to the next 70 years. The palace said that dancers, musicians, military personnel and key staff will “tell the story of the Queen’s reign” while the children will describe their hopes and aspirations for the planet.
