Platinum Jubilee

In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, 70 years of service, having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952 at just 25 years of age.

There are year-long Platinum Jubilee celebrations planned throughout the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and around the world as communities and people come together to celebrate The Queen’s historic reign. A wide range of events have been arranged across Cambridgeshire to complement a series of national celebrations. Cambridgeshire County Day is a key part of the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations.
