Washington: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II will mark her platinum jubilee in February with a star-studded concert, a parade, a pageant and a baking competition among numerous other events.

In February, the Queen will become the first British monarch to reach 70 years on the throne, surpassing Queen Victoria’s 63-year-long reign. Now aged 95, the Queen ascended to the throne on February 6, 1952, when her father, George VI, died of coronary thrombosis.

As per Variety, among dozens of events planned to mark the occasion are a thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral in honour of her long reign, celebratory street parties across the UK and the lighting of 1,500 beacons across the country. In the run-up to the event, 60,000 trees have also been planted in the Queen’s name to promote the issue of climate change.

Events to mark the celebration also include:

1. BBC’s Platinum Party at the Palace

Some of the world’s biggest artists will perform at a concert in Buckingham Palace which will be broadcast live on the BBC. Performers have not yet been revealed. Tickets for the event are open to the public via ballot.
