Top 5 Jubilee Weekend MUST-SEE Moments

In celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year, we’re taking part in a truly historic moment.

And with so many festivities going on, I’ve put together a countdown of the TOP 5 weird and wonderful must-see moments this Platinum Jubilee weekend.

Now, you may have already tried your hand at recreating the Fortnum and Mason Official Platinum Jubilee pudding — a Lemon Swiss Roll and Amaretti Trifle, chosen by Dame Mary Berry herself!

Or perhaps you’ve heard about the 3 second sell-out of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Barbie Doll?

Well, it doesn’t stop there. Up and down the country, formal and informal celebrations will be taking place. Here’s a countdown of my top 5 must-see moments:


5. Trooping the Colour, Thursday 2nd June

In just over a week’s time, more than 850 soldiers, 200 horses and 300 musicians will come together for the traditional parade to mark The Queen’s Official Birthday. This will be the first time since 2019 that the occasion of pageantry, fanfares and drumbeats can go ahead in its full splendour.

The colour being trooped this year is that of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards, with soldiers making their way from Buckingham Palace to Horse Guards Parade.

4. The Epsom Derby, Friday 3rd – Saturday 4th June

Continuing her lifelong relationship with the world’s greatest flat race, The Epsom Derby, this year the Queen has entered three of her horses in the derby as she attempts to win the prestigious horse race for the first time.

With a touch of carnival, this one’s for everyone — from racing royalty to racing rookies.

3. The United Kingdom and Commonwealth Illuminated, Thursday 2nd June

On the evening of 2nd June, the United Kingdom and Commonwealth will be illuminated by a blaze of light when more than 1,500 beacons are ignited in towns, villages and cities throughout Britain, the British Isles and the UK’s overseas territories, as well as the capital cities of Commonwealth countries.

This tradition dates back hundreds of years, celebrating royal weddings, jubilees, and coronations and has since become a symbol of unity across borders.

2. Platinum Party at the Palace, Saturday 4th June

This promises to be an occasion to remember, playing a central part in a weekend of pomp and parties.

A star-studded line-up of artists, bands, and entertainers from across music, film and theatre are set to give you the show of a lifetime.

The event will take place at Buckingham Palace and be broadcast live on the BBC.

1. The Big Jubilee Lunch, Thursday 2nd – Sunday 5th June

Inspiring community spirit across the nation, the initiative offers the opportunity to share food, friendship, and frivolity with neighbours.

Thousands of people have signed up to host a lunch with street parties expected to match those which broke out spontaneously at the end of the Second World War.

And while you’re stocking up on supplies for your very own Big Jubilee Lunch, you may spot some subtle Platinum Jubilee tributes from our supermarket staples like Heinz’s Salad Queen (Salad Cream) and HM Sauce (HP Sauce).
