The 2022 Platinum Jubilee will be a major occasion marking 70 years for Her Majesty The Queen as Head of State of the United Kingdom, its Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories, as Head of State of 15 Commonwealth Realms, and as Head of the Commonwealth.

The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office will work with the Royal Household and other Government Departments to ensure that the Platinum Jubilee is appropriately celebrated in the UK. British Embassies and High Commissions around the world will also mark the occasion. In addition to the Jubilee, the United Kingdom is scheduled to host the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in this special year.

Commonwealth Realms or other Commonwealth countries may choose to hold their own celebrations in recognition of this special landmark but these will be a matter for the Governments of each country.
