You can’t fail to have missed that 2022 is the year of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, commemorating 70 years of service since her coronation in 1952. While an incredible achievement – being the first British monarch ever to do so – it means the whole country can come together across four days of national celebration, and there’s plenty going on.
The Platinum Jubilee holiday weekend is from 2nd-5th June 2022 and includes two national bank holidays on Thursday and Friday. While one is extra, the other has been moved from its traditional spot at the end of May to give us a specially extended weekend.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, everyone around the country has the chance to be part of a whole host of planned community events, including street parties and fireworks. But, being the capital, it’s London where the official events are taking place.
Among the festivities will be moments of national reflection at The Queen’s Birthday Parade (Trooping The Colour) on June 2nd as well as a special Service of Thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral on June 3rd. And the big one taking place on June 4th, which will get everyone in celebration mode, is the Platinum Party at The Palace, featuring some of the biggest bands and artists in music.
But the grand finale to the official celebrations is the Platinum Jubilee Pageant. An all-inclusive festival of creativity, it will feature over 5,000 artists, dancers, and performers telling a visual story of The Queen’s landmark anniversary, all while taking in some of London’s most famous landmarks.
Rest and relaxation
It all sounds fantastic and well worth joining in or even just watching all the events on the TV if you can’t get to London. But despite all the celebrations going on, either nationally or locally, you might even find some free time to relax. After all, with two bank holidays and a unique 4-day weekend, maybe we should all kick back and take some well-earned rest and relaxation?
But, however you’re relaxing or celebrating this special weekend, you might even be tempted to do some garden maintenance, mowing, or weeding or even catch up on some extra work around the farm or stable yard to take care of some of the smaller jobs you otherwise can’t find the time for. If so, don’t forget your 3 Donkeys 2-into-1 ladies coveralls.
With our Dartmoor equestrian coveralls, our Classic ladies working coveralls and our new Original ladies coveralls, we have the complete set to keep you clean, dry, and protected from dirt whatever you’re doing. And they’re all in stock and ready to buy online today!
Celebrate in Jubilee style with 3 Donkeys
So why not treat yourself or someone special to a set of 3 Donkeys 2-into-1 ladies coveralls? Every order is handpicked, packed in a 100% recycled, branded drawstring bag, and wrapped in our recyclable and reusable packaging. Along with our range of accessories and apparel, they make the perfect celebration gift (we can even add gift wrapping for you).
And a final thought: while we might not have the royal seal of approval on our ladies’ coveralls (yet), we can’t help but notice that the purple used in the official jubilee branding and logos (which is always closely associated with royalty) is eerily close to our own 3 Donkeys brand colours! Coincidence…??
