The Queen's upcoming Platinum Jubilee party sounds next-level

·2-min read

If you can't throw a massive party in celebration of 70 years reigning as a literal Queen, when can you?

That seems to be the attitude Queen Elizabeth is taking when it comes to planning her Platinum Jubilee celebrations, set to take place next year.

2022 will mark 70 years since then-Princess Elizabeth became the Queen, and the huge milestone will be celebrated with a grand party at Windsor Castle, that'll be broadcast live on ITV.

And its sounds like HRH isn't doing things by halves. ITV has shared details of the Jubilee party, revealing big name stars taking part.

"The 2022 Royal Windsor Horse Show will culminate in a 90-minute event in the grounds of Windsor Castle as the country begins the big celebrations of the Queen’s 70-year reign," ITV said.

Actors Helen Mirren and Stephen Fry are tipped to be involved and, it's been said the stars who will appear are doing so because they are “deeply respectful” of the Queen. A "big contribution from Bollywood" is on the cards, marking India’s 75th anniversary of independence.

As well as A-Listers, the celebration will feature 500 horses and 1,000 dancers and musicians, whose background will be a floodlit Windsor Castle.

And while this all sounds super fun, the first big Jubilee without Prince Philip will - of course - commemorate the Duke of Edinburgh's life.

All the senior members of Royal Family are likely to attend the Horse Show, which will end with the live celebration on 15 May, and the Queen herself is involved in making sure everything is just right.

The event's Producer and Director, Simon Brooks-Ward, said the Queen has been involved in the planning process. Her Majesty "wants to know exactly what’s going on within the celebration”, he said.

He added the evening will be “light-hearted and joyful but also traditional and respectful”.

Sounds fun, huh? If you fancy being there, tickets go on sale from Wednesday 22 September.
