The United Kingdom (and the world) are only weeks away from the Platinum Jubilee which marks the 70 YEARS Queen Elizabeth II has sat on the throne and it’s gonna be BIG. 

 

The full line-up of who will be performing at the star-studded bash in the grounds of Buckingham Palace itself has been released and it’s pretty spectacular. Called the Platinum Party, Diana Ross will be joined by Queen and Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys, Andrea Bocelli, Duran Duran, Hans Zimmer, Ella Eyre, Craig David, Mabel, Elbow, and George Ezra.

 

One of the world’s ULTIMATE divas, Diana Ross, said of the her forthcoming performance: “Her Majesty has and continues to be such an incredible inspiration to so many across the world and I was absolutely delighted to receive an invitation to perform on such a momentous and historic occasion.”

 

Elton John has pre-recorded a performance and there will be non-musical parts of the show featuring Stephen Fry and Sir David Attenborough. That’s not all though as Eurovision star Sam Ryder will also be performing and a whole slew of other starts are involved too, such as Emma Raducanu, David Beckham, Dame Julie Andrews, The Royal Ballet and Paralympian swimmer Ellie Simmonds.

 

Phew! No matter where you are in the world and what you think of even having a monarchy, the Queen is beloved for her tireless service and is the longest serving monarch in living history which is pretty damn impressive which ever way you look at it.  The celebrations have already started (see below) but will culminate with the Platinum Party on on Saturday June 4.
