Platinum Jubilee Pageant: What to know about the celebration

Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations conclude Sunday

Since Thursday, several celebrations have taken place in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.

The queen is the first British monarch to reach the milestone of serving 70 years on the throne.

Members of the royal family have attended the Trooping the Colour ceremony, the service of thanksgiving and Saturday's Epsom Derby.

Queen Elizabeth has only missed two derby days during her reign, and this year marked the third.

The finale of the festivities celebrating the Queen is the Platinum Jubilee Pageant.

Unlike previous events, the final celebration is open to the public.

To kick off the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, the bells of Westminster Abbey will ring just as they did on Queen Elizabeth’s coronation day in 1953.

The Mounted Band of the Household Cavalry will then lead the Gold State Coach

pulled by eight Windsor Grey horses, through the streets near Buckingham Palace

and show archival images of a young Queen Elizabeth during her coronation.
