New details have been released ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations next year.

Brits will enjoy a four-day Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70-year reign on the throne.

The Queen is the first British Monarch to celebrate the occasion having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952, when she was 25-years-old.

The nation will come together to mark the occasion of 70 years on the throne and will be given an extra day off work to take part in a “blockbuster” four-day weekend of celebrations.

New details of ‘blockbuster’ four-day Bank Holiday for Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

A spectacular equestrian display showcasing horses from across the globe will be staged, organisers have announced.

A Gallop Through History has been billed as a “personal tribute to our monarchy” and will feature more than 500 horses and over a thousand dancers and musicians taking the audience on a journey from Elizabeth I to the Queen.

The monarch has a life-long love of all things equestrian and is being kept informed by organisers of their plans, and her ponies and horses are expected to feature in the event, with royal fans hoping to see members of the royal family taking part.

Dame Helen Mirren and comic actor Stephen Fry have been involved in publicising the event, which will be staged over four nights in the grounds of Windsor Castle next May, and are in discussions with organisers about taking part in the final show.

Sir Mike Rake, chairman of the Platinum Jubilee’s advisory board, said at the launch event, staged at the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace: “After 70 years on the throne and particularly poignantly after the dark and troubling times in the last 18 months, Her Majesty’s leadership, steadiness and unwavering devotion during her reign deserve recognition and celebration.”

He added: “In 2022 Her Majesty the Queen will have guided the nation through several decades of change, growth and advancement, like none before them – in times of triumph and also in times of trouble.

“In an age of advancement and adversary, the Queen has remained a constant, committed and courageous presence, therefore we have worthwhile and timely celebration.”

Nations from across the Commonwealth and other parts of the globe will be involved in the show – from Oman and India to the Caribbean, Canada, France and Norway.

Oliver Dowden on ‘historic’ moment in British history

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden previously said: "Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee will be a truly historic moment - and one that deserves a celebration to remember.

"We can all look forward to a special, four-day Jubilee weekend, when we will put on a spectacular, once-in-a-generation show that mixes the best of British ceremonial splendour with cutting edge art and technology.

"It will bring the entire nation and the Commonwealth together in a fitting tribute to Her Majesty’s reign."
