HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022


In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.

Throughout the year, Her Majesty and members of the Royal Family will travel around the country to undertake a variety of engagements to mark this historic occasion. This will culminate in a special four-day Bank Holiday Weekend, from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June 2022. There will be a series of very special events over the weekend and a full programme can be found here: Plans for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Central Weekend 2022 

There are lots of ways you can take part in The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, whether you are a local authority, school, business, community group or as an individual.

The Queen’s Green Canopy

The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark the Platinum Jubilee inviting people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.

Everyone from individuals to community groups, villages, cities, counties, schools and corporates are encouraged to play their part to enhance our environment by planting trees during the official planting season between October 2021 to March 2022. Tree planting will commence again in October 2022, through to the end of the Jubilee year.

Her Majesty and The Prince of Wales planted the first Jubilee tree in the grounds of Windsor Castle in March 2021, to mark the launch of the QGC. A number of trees have been planted across East Sussex, including by The Duchess of Cornwall on a visit to St Wilfred’s Hospice in Eastbourne in November 2021.

You can add your Jubilee tree to The Queen’s Green Canopy map – see further details at: The Queen’s Green Canopy

In East Sussex the Queen’s Green Canopy is being coordinated by a group of Deputy Lieutenants and Action in Rural Sussex. See further information at: Queen’s Green Canopy | Action in rural Sussex
