The nation has gathered over the past few days to celebrate over the Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend, with parties across the UK celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s incredible 70 years on the throne.
Highlights of the memorable event have included the spectacular flypast, not to mention the star-studded Platinum Jubilee concert, featuring Her Majesty in a very special appearance with Paddington Bear – while the Jubilee pageant brings the whole thing to a close.
It’s the first time a monarch has celebrated a Platinum Jubilee in this country, although the Queen is no stranger to having marked other milestones, previously celebrating her Silver, Ruby, Golden, Diamond and Sapphire Jubilees.
But which one – marking a 75th anniversary – would come next?
What comes after a Platinum Jubilee?
As it stands, the Royal Collection Trust currently does not list any more official Jubilees after the Platinum one to mark 70 years.
However, there are three anniversaries which follow the 70-year mark, which are as follows:
75th anniversary – Diamond (which is not to be confused with the Diamond anniversary or Jubilee to mark 60 years)80th anniversary – Oak90th anniversary – Granite
Prior to the Platinum Jubilee, the biggest events the Queen has so far celebrated during her reign were the Silver Jubilee in 1977, marking 25 years, and her 50th anniversary Golden Jubilee in 2002.
More recently she marked her Diamond Jubilee – marking 60 years on the throne – in 2012, with a string of spectacular events across the country.
The next milestone event in her life prior to any further significant anniversaries would be her 100th birthday in four years time.

Should the Queen make it to 100, she would not be the first member of the Royal Family to do so.
That age was indeed reached by The Queen Mother, who lived to be 101, while the Queen’s aunt Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester lived to be 102.
