Her Majesty, who celebrates her 70th year on the throne, is pulling out all the stops to ensure that the occasion is remembered by throwing a big party in the grounds of her London home.
The BBC has revealed that 5,000 people will be invited to gather in the grounds of Buckingham Palace to party with the Queen and help her celebrate this huge milestone.
In order to be in with the chance of winning a once in a lifetime invite, people can apply online for tickets between 24th February and 23rd March.
Their names will be entered into a special ballot from which 5,000 people will be drawn at random to receive a pair of tickets to the event.
Unlike other ballots, which tend to operate on a first come, first served basis, there will be equal opportunity to win regardless of when you enter the ballot providing the entries are open.
Speaking about the Queen throwing a party, Charlotte Moore, chief content officer at the BBC, said, “The Platinum Party at the Palace is set to be one of the highlights of Her Majesty The Queen’s landmark Jubilee festivities weekend and one of the biggest concerts in a generation.
“The BBC is honoured to be bringing every moment of this live event to millions watching and listening at home, and on outdoor screens across the UK and around the world.”
And there’s even more of a reason as the party is being held on his daughter Lilibet-Diana’s first birthday and will see the public enjoy a four-day bank holiday weekend from Thursday the 2nd of June to 5th of June.
