35 majestic tweets about the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
It’s more than 70 years since Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne, although her coronation didn’t happen for another year.
She is the longest-reigning British monarch, currently beating Queen Victoria’s reign by more than six years, and the celebrations are suitably massive.
Her Majesty The Queen, the first Monarch in British history to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee.
To mark the beginning of the #PlatinumJubilee Celebration Weekend, a new portrait of The Queen has been released.

Very conflicted this week as I am a staunch anti-monarchist but I simply adore bunting

I hope the Queen has a proper day out, I hope she’s started drinking already. Gets bang on it later tonight, tells her kids she doesn’t love them all the same, tells Nicholas Witchell he’s a wanker, and goes home with a guardsman.

The Queen intends to cancel all formal plans she has with Prince Charles for her Platinum Jubilee as she wants to break from traditional celebrations for once and just let her heir down.

the queen should do a compilation of all the best tv comedy moments, queen falling through the bar, "don't tell them you name ma'am", queen running out of a wheelchair and up a diving board, queen asking "has anybody got a bottle of orange juice"

Been looking through the Queen’s receipts to try and figure out what to buy for a jubilee gift and it turns out her main interests are corgis and paying off people who have accused her son of sexual crime, probably best to stick to flowers

“Doing anything for the Jubilee?”
“Watching telly, eating meals, work, housework, walking, sitting… just generally continuing to exist.”

Platinum Jubilee sounds like the name of a bond girl

Has anyone ever made festive bunting out of ham and cheese? Alternate slices of thinly sliced, triangular cheddar and ham (honey roast)? If a village or a street party promised such bunting, I would consider going.

The wonderful thing about the Platinum Jubilee weekend is that I might get a chance to regrout the bathroom floor.

Getting the Platty Jubes party started by doing some of my favourite Prince Philip gaffes for all the pensioners trying to keep warm on the top deck of the 317 bus.
