The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office has issued guidance to its teams in the Overseas Territories, and in other locations, to mark Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee. They are encouraged to work with local partners and create opportunities throughout the year to celebrate this important milestone. For example, they may choose to host 'Queen's Birthday Party' events, support tree planting for the Queen's Green Canopy and the lighting of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Beacons. They may also amplify wider initiatives for the Jubilee, such as the Platinum Pudding Competition, the Big Jubilee Lunch and the 2022 Platinum Jubilee Civic Honours Competition, through which George Town (Cayman Islands), Gibraltar (Gibraltar) and Stanley (Falkland Islands) have applied for city status.
