Several celebrations have been set in the calendar for the occasion, including an extra bank holiday in June, but did you know that she has also invited a special celebrity guest to host a concert at her country home in Norfolk? The official website for the monarch's property, Sandringham Estate, has announced: "Welsh Superstar Mezzo Soprano Katherine Jenkins OBE will perform in Sandringham Royal Parkland as part of celebrations to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on Friday 3rd June 2022.

Meanwhile, an exhibition titled, Her Majesty The Queen at Sandringham: An Exemplary Reign and a Unique Country House, will go on display inside the Ballroom at Sandringham House from 9 April – 13 October. It will include photographs showing the Queen’s love of horses and the great outdoors, and a display on her very first Christmas Day speech broadcast from 1957.

The 95-year-old monarch traditionally hosts a Christmas celebration at Sandringham House with royals including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, and Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex. Her Majesty would then stay at the 600-acre estate until early February, after marking the anniversary of her father's death privately.

As well as the 19th-century Sandringham House, which has a ballroom, saloon and spacious dining room where the royals can enjoy their Christmas lunch, the estate is also home to St. Mary Magdalene Church and Prince William and Kate Middleton's country property, Anmer Hall.
