Program for Sunday, June 5
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant will complete the weekend extravaganza with Ed Sheeran, Sir Cliff Richard and Gary Lineker among the stars ready to take part.
Kicking off the event will be the chime of the bells of Westminster as they did for the Queen’s coronation 70 years ago.
The Household Cavalry Mounted Band will then lead the Gold State Coach along a crowded historical re-enactment route to Buckingham Palace.
Sparkling stars will also take part, with Ed Sheeran performing in a People’s Pageant carnival finale along The Mall in London.
Other celebrities confirmed throughout the day include Sir Cliff Richard, Jeremy Irons, Gary Lineker, Bill Bailey and Gok Wan.
The £15million competition is ‘made by the people for the people’ and is a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience, organizers have said.
It is meant to bring iconic moments from the Queen’s reign to life and show how society has changed over the past 70 years.
Highlights will include an aerial performer suspended beneath a vast helium balloon, known as the Heliosphere, featuring the Queen’s likeness.
Other key moments will be a giant oak tree flanked by maypole dancers, a huge moving wedding cake echoing Bollywood hits, a towering dragon and three-story beasts.
Also on Sunday, a large Jubilee Luncheon will also be held across the country on June 5, with over 60,000 people registered to host one of their own.
The events involved range from world record attempts for the longest street party to backyard barbecues.
