Sunday, June 5th schedule
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant will complete the extravaganza this weekend with Ed Sheeran, Sir Cliff Richard and Gary Lineker are among the stars set to take part.
At the start of the event, the bells of Westminster will ring as they did before the coronation of the Queen 70 years ago.
The Mounted Band of the Household Cavalry will then lead the Gold State Coach along a crowd-thronged pageant route back to Buckingham Palace.
Glittering stars will also take part, with Ed Sheeran performing in a Carnival finale of The People’s Pageant alongside The Mall in London.
Other celebrities confirmed throughout the day include Sir Cliff Richard, Jeremy Irons, Gary Lineker, Bill Bailey and Gok Wan.
The £ 15 million rally is “made by the people for the people” and is a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience, organizers said.
It is set to bring to life iconic moments from the Queen’s government and also to show how society has changed over the past 70 years.
Highlights will include an aerial artist hung under a large helium balloon, known as a heliosphere, with the image of the Queen.
Other key moments will be a giant oak tree flanked by maypole dancers, an enormously moving wedding cake that sounds like Bollywood hits, a towering dragon and beasts of three storeys high.
Also on Sunday, a major anniversary lunch will also be held in the country on June 5, with more than 60,000 people registered to host one of their own.
The events involved are set to range from world record attempts for the longest street party to garden barbecues.
