Celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee with Living Memories Online Archive Collections
On 6th February, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. Living Memories Online has created a special collection of online archive videos taking a look back through Elizabeth II's iconic life, from her days as a young Princess, through to the Coronation in 1953 and beyond.
You will need to register for a paid subscripton on our platform in order to view the Collection and watch these videos.
Celebrations are planned across the country over the coming months, including street parties, parades, and pageants. It's a great time to reflect back on previous festivities that united the country and brought people out into the streets as a community. Over the long bank-holiday weekend in June, Trooping the Colour will be back in full for the first time since the pandemic began, as well as the Queen attending a Derby at Epsom Downs.
We've collated archive videos of all of these previous events in the last century, hoping to trigger memories and spark conversations.
