BBC To Extensively Cover Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee

In celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II becoming the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service, BBC World News, BBC World Service and BBC.com will be offering comprehensive coverage of the build up to the Jubilee weekend as well as the official celebrations in London.

Former BBC World News America anchor Katty Kay will return to front the coverage on BBC World News. Katty said, “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the world to come together and celebrate seven remarkable decades of Queen Elizabeth II’s service to the UK and Commonwealth and I’m excited that I’ll be at the heart of the action, bringing on-the-ground coverage to our audiences across the world.”

On the BBC World News side of things, there will be coverage of the Queen’s Birthday Parade, interviews with watchers-on over the course of the weekend, beacon lighting ceremonies and an hour-long highlight of the big day.

BBC World Service will be broadcasting a Thanksgiving service on the 3rd of June, alongside several 1-hour documentaries and a special edition of The Cultural Frontline featuring Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall.

Finally, BBC.com will be running a variety of pieces covering the Jubilee in a special section on the news front page of their site between 1-4 June. These will include a visual journey through the Queen’s time on the throne, a deep appraisal of her reign, and an appreciation of her loyal companions, the corgis.

There will also be featured pieces on BBC Culture, including a look at how fiction has depicted various interpretations of the Queen and a look back at some of her most iconic style moments across her reign.

The Jubilee will run between Thursday 2nd and Sunday 5th June, 2022.

Alas, 10's Gladiators has gone as quickly as it came. Should make for a very wild garage sale, however.
