After months of preparation, the Platinum Jubilee celebrations are finally here, celebrating the Queen’s historic 70 years on the throne. Marked by a long four-day weekend in the UK, the milestone anniversary is being fêted up and down the country with parties and special events, from afternoon teas and outdoor picnics to a big Jubilee concert.

The royal family are going to be out in force, attending various celebrations across the UK and meeting with local communities – from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visiting Cardiff Castle to Princess Anne taking a trip to Edinburgh Zoo. But first, the celebratory weekend will kick off with the official Trooping the Colour parade, which will see the whole family gather in London, and all senior working royals make that famous appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony.
