Factfile... on Royal Ju­bilees

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

QUEEN El­iz­a­beth II is the fourth Bri­tish monarch to cel­e­brate a ju­bilee but only the sec­ond to make it to 60 years.

King Ge­orge III was the first to cel­e­brate a Ju­bilee, as we do to­day, when he cel­e­brated his Golden Ju­bilee in 1809.

Queen Vic­to­ria cel­e­brated her Golden Ju­bilee in 1887 and her Di­a­mond Ju­bilee ten years later.

Her 60 years on the throne was marked with a Royal Pro­ces­sion, led by the Queen, from Buck­ing­ham Palace to St Paul’s Cathe­dral and back.
