The Platinum Jubilee Celebration has been nicknamed A Gallop Through History but we like to think of it as Lizapalooza. The jubilee is described as a, “personal tribute to our monarchy,” and the equestrian event alone, “will feature more than 500 horses and over 1,000 performers taking the audience on a journey from Elizabeth I to the Queen.”
The queen and her family are keen equestrians and her personal ponies and horses will play a part in the grand event, and royal fans hope to see members of the royal family take part.

Dame Helen Mirren and comic actor Stephen Fry are among the luminaries involved in publicizing the jubilee. The event unfolds from May 12-15 with 5,000 spectators a night on the grounds of Windsor Castle expected to take in the grandeur.
Sir Mike Rake is the chairman of the Platinum Jubilee Celebration. He said, “After 70 years on the throne and particularly poignantly after the dark and troubling times in the last 18 months, Her Majesty’s leadership, steadiness and unwavering devotion during her reign deserve recognition and celebration.”
He added, “In 2022 Her Majesty the Queen will have guided the nation through several decades of change, growth and advancement, like none before them, in times of triumph and also in times of trouble.”

An Equestrian Show Is Planned For The Jubilee
The show will feature international military displays from the Commonwealth and Europe, as well as the UK’s Armed Forces plus worldwide equestrian performers.
The participating countries include Oman, India, nations from the Caribbean, Canada, France and Norway.
In 2016 the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration at Windsor was a much smaller display and raised £1.2 million for military, Commonwealth and equestrian charities. It is hoped that the 2022 show surpasses this figure.
