This year's Platinum Jubilee promises a busy schedule with many ways to celebrate the monarch reaching an unprecedented 70 years on the British throne.

Buckingham Palace in January laid out plans for several major events in 2022 to honor the long-reigning queen, who turned 96 on April 21

The elaborate plans, some of which are set to welcome thousands of guests, were publicized weeks after the queen was forced to scale back her family's annual Christmas celebrations due to rising COVID-19 cases. Queen Elizabeth, whose husband Prince Philip died in April at age 99, has also seen her own share of health scares over the past year, including a COVID diagnosis in February, a stay at the hospital in October and several missed events

On Feb. 6, the matriarch officially served as queen for 70 years, the longest a British monarch has ever ruled. The queen's reign began on the same day in 1952, with the death of her father, King George VI. She was formally crowned on June 2, 1953.
