On the 2nd of June, the Lloyd James office was filled with celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee! To honour 70 years of Queen Elizabeth II being on the throne, our team celebrated together with games, fancy dress and more.
What is the Platinum Jubilee?
This year marks 70 years since Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation took place. This is a remarkable achievement, so it was no wonder why thousands of people across the country celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee from 2nd June to 5th June.
Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation
On June 2nd, 1953, Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in Westminster Abbey, London. This made her the 6th Queen to be crowned in Westminster Abbey, as well as being the 39th Sovereign. Out of a population of 36 million at the time, 27 million people watched the ceremony on their television, with 11 million tuning in on the radio.
How we celebrated
At Lloyd James we decided to bring the celebrations into the office, with competitions and delicious food available for our staff members. Competitions included working in teams to create the best themed Jubilee areas, with a hamper gifted to the winning team. Celebrating in the office was a great way of involving our team together and respecting the achievements of Queen Elizabeth II.
