On 6 February 2022, Her Majesty the Queen will become the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to Great Britain and the Commonwealth. Ahead of the celebrations, the Platinum Jubilee Pageant has announced 16 partners representing fashion, culture, travel, business and hospitality, including major British household brands and international companies who will come together for the event on 5 June.
British heritage fashion titan Burberry has been named as a platinum partner of the Pageant – which is being financed by a collective of Royal Warrant holders, commercial businesses, corporate partners, and individuals – alongside Moët & Chandon, St James’ House and Marks and Spencer. Other Pageant partners include Fortnum & Mason, Cadbury and John Lewis, with more to be announced closer to the event.
The Pageant plans to bring an unforgettable experience to millions across the globe, marking an unprecedented once-in-a-lifetime celebration. “We are delighted by the generosity of our partners, all recognising the significance and power of this unique occasion,” said Platinum Jubilee Pageant co-chair Nicholas Coleridge. “The reach of the Pageant will extend far beyond London, and we are striving to include communities and people from all backgrounds, from every part of the nation.”
With all the thrills and spectacle of an international carnival, the Pageant will combine theatre, music, street arts and costume to tell the story of the Queen’s 70-year reign and our changing society with it. Chair of Burberry, Gerry Murphy, commented: “The Pageant is a unique occasion for communities from all over the world to come together to celebrate Her Majesty’s dedication to service over Her 70- year reign. We are absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to be part of this extraordinary festival of creativity in honour of The Queen’s reign.”
