Historical Milestone of a British Monarch

More than 500 horses and 1,000 performers took part in a 90-minute programme for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebration, marking the momentous occasion of 70 years on the throne. She officially hit the milestone back on February 6th, with celebrations happening throughout 2022. A variety of stage stars took part in the televised theatrical arena event, broadcast on ITV and ITV Hub from the grounds of Windsor Castle in Berkshire on May 15, 2022, as Britbox North America live streamed the event to viewers in the United States and Canada. The event took place from 8:00 p.m. to about 10:40 p.m. local UK time.

Helen Mirren took on the role of Elizabeth I (fitting, given she played Elizabeth II on stage) alongside Omid Djalili as The Herald, a character who introduces a cast of Queen’s Players, in the first of four acts charting the modern history of the nation. Damian Lewis opened the evening (video below), and Tom Cruise and Adjoa Andoh all served as hosts for the other acts. Musical guests included Gregory Porter, Maureen Lipman, Katherine Jenkins of Wales who sang Calon Lan and David Jason at various intervals throughout the night. Each act reflected on key moments in history, including Elizabeth I’s Tilbury Speech and James I and the Gunpowder Plot.
