Queen Elizabeth is celebrating 70 years as Britain’s reigning Monarch, and you can bet she (and the rest of the country) are celebrating hard.
Years in the making, the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations will begin on Thursday, June 2—the first of a four-day bank holiday weekend for the residents of the UK—with Trooping the Colour. Following that, a full-blown royal (and celebrity) spectacle awaits. Prince William and Kate Middleton will reunite with Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, while the likes of Elton John and Ed Sheeran will make special performances in honour of the country’s longest serving Monarch.
Of course, London itself will light up for the event-filled four days, but royal fans in Australia won’t miss the action either with television coverage and live streaming available to watch free to air.
Here, where to catch the Platinum Jubilee celebrations on Australian television.
