As a result, it is postponed to June so the British can step behind the queen and celebrate the longest reigning monarch.
Mr. Dowden said: “Her Majesty’s Platinum Anniversary will be a truly historic moment. One that deserves a celebration to be remembered.
“We can all look forward to a special four-day anniversary weekend. We’re going to put on a spectacular one-time show combining the best of British ceremonial splendor with cutting edge art and technology.
“It will bring the entire nation together in fitting tribute to Her Majesty’s reign.”
What day is the platinum anniversary?
This is where people can be confused about the date of the new bank holiday.
The Queen will celebrate her platinum anniversary in February 2022.
However, the British can enjoy a festive weekend in the sun in June.
