The dates for a bonus four-day bank holiday weekend next year have been revealed.
Buckingham Palace confirmed the news on Wednesday as part of its plans for the Queen's upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations in 2022.
The special four-day Bank Holiday weekend will take place between 2nd and 5th June, during which Trooping the Colour will be staged in full for the first time since the pandemic began.
The following day a Service of Thanksgiving for the Queen's reign will be held at St Paul's Cathedral and the third day of the weekend, a Saturday, will see the Queen joined by members of the royal family at the Derby, held at Epsom Downs.
That evening, a live concert will be staged at Buckingham Palace - called the Platinum Party at the Palace.
Performers have yet to be named but it is billed as bringing together some of the world's biggest entertainment stars to celebrate memorable moments from the Queen's seven-decade reign.
Elizabeth II will be the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952, when she was 25 years old.
