How to prepare for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee

The Royal Family is a massive part of life in Britain and a great source of pride for the whole country. 2022 is an especially big year for them because of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This is a celebration being held to mark the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s reign. As such, a 4 day Bank Holiday weekend (2nd June 2022 to 5th June 2022) has been set aside for the British public to recognise this special occasion.

The Platinum Jubilee is very important to people in Britain because it enables them to recognise the 70 years of loyal service the Queen has given to the country. If you are thinking of holding an outdoor event, house party or street party to celebrate, it is key to start preparing for it now.

But what are the essential supplies you will need?


To really mark the Platinum Jubilee in style, red, white and blue bunting is a must. This will help capture that joyous party spirit at any get-together and make any home or outdoor event look top-notch.


As well as bunting, Queen’s Jubilee flags are something to get stocked up with in advance. The great thing about flags like this is that they are so versatile. People can wave them for example as they watch the action unfold on TV or as they wander around a street party. You can also hang flags inside your home to mark the jubilee or put them outside your front door.

Paper plates and tablecloths

Whatever type of party you might be planning, there is a fair chance food and drink might be involved. A great tip is to pick up union jack paper plates and cups to use. These give a cheap and quick way to buy all the tableware you need for bigger celebrations. Union jack tablecloths are also a great item to buy in advance and help keep any tables tidy, whilst also looking amazing.

Commemorative gifts

Preparing to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is not all about big parties with other people for everyone. If you will be celebrating on a smaller scale, commemorative gifts (like a union jack bowler hat) are inspired choices. These not only enable you to get into the spirit over the bank holiday weekend but give you something to keep as a memento.
