Next Year's Jubilee Celebration Will Include A Tribute To Queen Elizabeth & Prince Philip's 'Most Joyous Moments' Together
While the 2022 Platinum Jubilee will honor the 70-year reign of Queen Elizabeth, it's been revealed that a portion of the celebration will act as a touching tribute to her and the late Prince Philip's marriage.
Pageant master Adrian Evans spilled a few details as to what the public can expect to see next year when the festivties kick off on June 2.
"The pageant invites diverse communities to play their part in the celebrations in their own unique, creative way – placing them centre stage," he shared. "We are commissioning artists and the communities they work with to interpret different chapters of The Queen’s reign in a spectacular unfolding story filled with wonder, warmth, wit and wow-factor."

"We will interpret the Coronation, Royal Weddings and Jubilees. We are inspired by The Queen’s regard for family values, her care for community, her love of the natural environment, her passion for equestrianism and her constant corgi companions," he continued. "There also is a tribute to The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s most joyous moments."
More than 5,000 military personnel, performers, and volunteers will participate in the special day, which will represent each decade that the Queen has been leading.
"From the rebuilding of the post-war 50s, the pageant will take us on a journey through to the digital decade of the 90s and onwards to today where we stand on the cusp of new adventures and fresh progress," co-chairman Sir Michael Lockett described.
The following days will include a concert, special luncheon and more.

The 2022 event will be the first full-fledged shindig in two years, since previous festivities had to be scaled down to Coronavirus.
Despite the royal family's drama, it's been reported that the Queen has invited Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and their two kids to the event, but at the moment, it's unclear if they'll attend.
