Queen Elizabeth II will be celebrating 70 years on the throne this June, and London is getting ready to celebrate in a major way! As People shares, new details of plans for the royal's Platinum Jubilee weekend have been unveiled, and it promises to be an exciting occasion!
Queen's Platinum Jubilee to feature moat attraction
Queen Elizabeth II's big Jubilee weekend will take place from June 2 to June 5, and some of the events that will occur then have been announced! Of course one of them will be the queen's customary Trooping the Colour celebration, which is open for public viewing. There is also scheduled to be a church service at St Paul's Cathedral, a luncheon, a concert that's been dubbed "Platinum Party at the Palace," and more.
One event in particular stands out though due to its impressive scope— "Superbloom," which involves a huge slide at the Tower of London! What makes the attraction even more notable is that it will give access to the Tower's moat, which will be filled with flowers. According to Historic Royal Palace's Director of Engagement, Tom O'Leary, the experience is made from sustainable materials and designed to create "a sense of occasion and fun" for those who visit.
Queen Elizabeth II has already begun to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee with various events. Earlier this month, she was photographed at a special press event where her sweet Corgi also happened to be in attendance. And while hosting a tea party at Sandringham Palace, the queen held onto a special cane that once belonged to the late Prince Philip!
