Queen Elizabeth to celebrate 70 years on the throne with all-star concert and other events


Queen Elizabeth has plans made as she enters her 70th year on the throne this summer. In February, the Queen will become the first British monarch to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee, surpassing Queen Victoria’s 63-year reign. To mark the occasion, dozens of events, including a concert of stars, a competition, a parade, a pastry competition supervised by The Great British Bake-Off fame Mary Berry among others have been announced.

According to Variety, the events also include a Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral, street parties across the UK as well as the lighting of 1,500 beacons across the country.
