The BBC has announced its full programming schedule for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend. From TV to radio, the momentous milestone will be marked with content from across the UK.
TV presenter Kirsty Young has been confirmed as the presenter for the Platinum Jubilee coverage over the four-day weekend, after stepping back from the programme in August 2018 due to health complications. Meanwhile, Clive Myrie, Mary Berry, Huw Edwards and Clare Balding will also front special programmes.
“The BBC is marking The Queen’s momentous Platinum Jubilee in spectacular style with an unprecedented range of special programming,” BBC Chief Content Officer, Charlotte Moore, says.
“In celebration of Her Majesty’s seventy years of service the BBC will bring the people of the UK together with something for everyone to commemorate this historic anniversary culminating on the extended bank holiday weekend.”
Highlights include The Crown Jewels documentary presented by Clive Myrie, and The Queens Jubilee Pudding: 70 Years in the Baking with Mary Berry, and the Platinum Party At The Palace — live from Buckingham Palace. If you aren’t able to attend the events in person, the BBC is making it accessible for everyone to join in from the comfort of their own home.
Kirsty Young adds: “I’m delighted to be back on the BBC for such an historic, unique, and happy event. It’s going to be quite a weekend and our coverage will bring viewers everywhere a front row seat at the celebrations. I can’t wait!”

This historic jubilee makes a great excuse to add another Emma Bridgewater mug to your collection! This one features our national anthem in EB’s signature script on a proud red background.
Here’s a more subtle design from Emma Bridgewater.
Lastly, the potter has this vibrant green option. Which will you choose?
Harrods has released its own commemorative mug, too. This fine bone china option features the dates of the Queen’s reign in shining gold and finished with the royal crests.
Particularly dedicated royalists will be pleased with this lovely handmade cushion cover; it’s thoroughly celebratory without being garish. It’d fit right in with a country cottage scheme while adding a cheerful flash of colour.
This design is also available as a tea towel, if you prefer – in a good range of colours.
This makes a fun memento – use it to display your scones or sandwiches for your Jubilee garden party over the bank holiday weekend, then display it on the wall or your cabinet after the festivities are done.
Hang this suitably British bunting around your garden fence, conservatory or the front of your property to show your appreciation for our longest-reigning monarch. It comes in either two or five metre lengths, or you can ask for your specific requirements.
Made from gold-plated pewter and studded with glittering crystals, this ornate decoration is exclusive to the Historic Royal Palaces shop. Keep it proudly on display in a cabinet, or you could even use the hanging loop to turn it into a Christmas tree ornament, if you like.
No garden party is complete without cake. These rice paper toppers will ensure your offerings are less Victoria sponge and more Elizabeth II – much more appropriate, in this instance!
A subtle design finished with traditional royal purple crowns; these are lovingly hand-painted to order, so you know you’re getting something thoughtful to commemorate this special occasion.
Okay, this charger plate is expensive, but it is handmade from fine bone china and finished with burnished 22-carat gold detailing, so it is a really exquisite piece. Plus, we’re sure you agree that a Platinum jubilee party deserves something extra special to celebrate properly. Put this plate pride of place on your table to show off your afternoon tea spread for your do.
With its ornate crown, orb and sceptre design, this lovely Emma Bridgewater design will pay homage to our queen while brightening up your kitchen (and helping with the washing up!).
Traditional tones in white, blue and red here for this tea towel – and there’s some matching bunting available, too.
More tea towels here – choose your favourite design, or collect all three!
To match the charger plate above, this charming teapot will finish off your royal scheme perfectly. We just love the little crown on the lid.
