A four-day celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s 70-year throne has begun. The official celebration of Platinum Jubilee begins Thursday at Trooping the Color, a review of British military traditions.
The Queen is expected to join her family members on the balcony of Buckingham Palace at the end of the event as 70 planes fly overhead. Elizabeth, 96, is Britain’s longest monarch and the first monarch to serve for 70 years.
Neighboring organizations are expected to hold street parties nationwide on four-day holiday weekends. Jubilee gives people the opportunity to think about the major changes that took place during the Queen’s reign.
While Elizabeth was in office as Queen, there were seven Popes, 14 US Presidents, and 13 British Prime Ministers. At the age of 96, she is the oldest British monarch in history.
Elizabeth is considered the head of state of the federations of 15 countries. However, her role as head of state in countries such as Canada and New Zealand is largely ceremonial.
