BritBox North America announced today that it will exclusively stream The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration live with the UK on May 15.
This year, 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.
Hundreds upon hundreds of events celebrating this incredible milestone will be happening across the UK, both before and after the Royal long weekend of June 2-5, which features The Queen’s birthday parade, aka Trooping the Colour, the Platinum Party at the Palace, and the Platinum Pageant.
Amongst them is The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration, which will be broadcast live in the UK on ITV on Sunday, May 15, and streamed live in North America on BritBox.
Hosted by Phillip Schofield and Julie Etchingham, it will feature guests that include Adjoa Andoh, Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, Dame Joan Collins, Sir Mo Farah, Dame Maureen Lipman, Sir David Jason, Alan Titchmarsh, Dame Kelly Holmes, Moira Stuart, and Sir Trevor McDonald, with special performances from Keala Settle, Gregory Porter, and Katherine Jenkins as they pay tribute to The Queen’s remarkable 70 years of service.
The theatrical arena event will include 1300 performers and 500 horses, and is made up of four acts, each one to be overseen by hosts Tom Cruise, Damian Lewis, Adjoa Andoh, and Alan Titchmarsh. The Celebration will take viewers on a gallop through history — from the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, through to the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, and culminating in a grand finale.
Dame Helen Mirren will take on the role of Queen Elizabeth I, while a cast of “Queen’s Players” will be introduced by a character called “The Herald,” played by Omid Djalili.
Music will be provided by a 75-piece orchestra comprised of Tri-Service personnel and augmented with members of The National Symphony Orchestra, with special performances from Keala Settle, Gregory Porter, and Katherine Jenkins.
BritBox will begin live-streaming The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration on May 15 at 3:30 PM ET / 12:30 PM PT (time to be confirmed).
