The Jubilee History
The Queen’s Coronation was on 2nd June 1953, but her incredible 70 year reign actually began on Accession Day, 6th February 1952, following the death of her beloved father, King George VI. The Queen’s reign has spanned 7 decades of British and World history, during which time so much has altered.
The Queen in Windsor
Her Majesty has a special relationship with our town and we are fortunate that Windsor Castle is one of the main Royal residences.
Previous Jubilee Celebrations
Back in 1977 The Queen reached her first Jubilee – the Silver Jubilee. The Prince Philip Trust Fund, a wonderful local charity which has supported numerous worthy causes, was born out of the Silver Jubilee, now 45 years ago!
In 2012 for the Diamond Jubilee, Windsor hosted a wonderful equine pageant, where The Queen watched a fantastic display of horses and over 1000 performers from around the World.
