When Princess Elizabeth became Queen on 6 February 1952, few could have anticipated that she would go on to become Britain's longest-reigning monarch; a figure revered around the world for her wisdom, dedication and sense of duty. Seventy years on, and Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee will see the nation come together to celebrate a truly historic landmark. Over a special, four-day bank holiday weekend in early June 2022, millions of well-wishers from the UK, the Commonwealth and beyond will take part in a spectacular mixture of traditional pageantry, technological displays and public events. The highlight will be the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, which will see 6,500 performers and participants from across the UK and the Commonwealth parade past Buckingham Palace and along The Mall in front of vast crowds and the world's media. Accompanying this unique and joyous occasion, Her Majesty The Queen: The Official Platinum Jubilee Pageant Commemorative Album charts the trials and triumphs of The Queen's 70-year reign and explores how Her Majesty has provided the country and Commonwealth with a lifetime of leadership, from her steadfast presence during the Second World War through to her current unifying influence at a time of political, economic and social turbulence. The book will also include exclusive written content by Tom Parker Bowles. A renowned food writer and critic, he will provide readers with an insight into the royals' dining tastes and traditions, and into the history and flavour of royal celebrations past and present. In addition, the publication will feature exclusive content about the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, a programme of events that readers can follow from home over the jubilee weekend. At least half the content in the book is provided by official supporters detailing a select portfolio of products and services that have contributed to the social and economic history of Britain and the Commonwealth during The Queen's reign. Featuring more than 250 photographs from throughout The Queen's life, the fully illustrated hardback publication is the only book product licensed by the Platinum Jubilee Pageant and permitted to carry the official logo; as part of the agreement, our brand and book will be used throughout the televised event and weekend celebrations.; 400 pages, colour and black & white; Published: 02/06/2022
