The countdown is on for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations: a long weekend to say ‘three cheers’ to Her Majesty for 70 years of service on the throne. There’s Trooping the Colour on 2 June, a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral on 3 June, the Derby on 4 June, followed by the Platinum Party at the Palace that evening, and a finale of the Platinum Jubilee Pageant down The Mall on 5 June.
