Get your tea and crumpets ready; it’s The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee making it 70 years since she took the reins of the UK.

The BBC is broadcasting the once in a lifetime event throughout the monumental day. The problem is, if you’re outside the UK, you won’t have access to the broadcast.

By the end of this article, you’ll have everything you need to stream the show live to your devices no matter where you are globally, letting you enjoy all the celebrations.

Is The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on TV?

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is available to watch on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. However, as I mentioned previously, officially you’ll need to be in the UK to access the broadcast.

If you’re elsewhere, I have a trick for you to unblock the coverage in your location.

How do I watch The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in my country?

To watch the longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth celebrate 70 years on the throne outside the UK, you need to use a VPN app.

What does a VPN do?

It allows you to connect to the internet through another country of your choosing and you can then use your connection to make websites and apps like the BBC let you watch the broadcast.

It doesn’t matter what country you’re in; you can stream the coverage in your region without any annoying restrictions.

Where to get a VPN?

VPNs are two to a penny; there are so many of them it can be confusing which is the best option for you.

However, like good ole Lizzie, there is one VPN that’s above the rest, ExpressVPN.

ExpressVPN reigns supreme over all other VPN services. It has lightning-fast connection speeds, super-reliable servers and is one of the easiest to use VPN apps. What more could you want from a VPN provider?

What’s The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee all about?

If you haven’t heard, the one and only Queen Elizabeth (British Queen) is celebrating her Platinum Jubilee on the 4th of June 2022. That’s a whopping 70 years sitting on the throne; what a milestone!

The BBC is hosting a celebration at Buckingham Palace, London and has a wide variety of special programmes, guests, interviews, and live footage from the event itself. It really is a once in a lifetime event that you can’t afford to miss.

Recently, Historic England’s chief executive released rare photos of the queen and some of the historical locations linked to her reign. He said he hopes the photos would inspire people to “follow in her footsteps.”

Who will take part in The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee?

There will be many specially filmed programmes shown throughout the day with numerous guests, stars, and interviews with those close to The Queen.

Kirsty Young and Roman Kemp host the BBC’s live coverage of the event.

Young is one of Scotland’s most well-known TV and radio presenters, best known for Desert Island Discs and BBC One’s Crimewatch.

Kemp is best known for his hosting radio shows on Capital FM. Over the last few years, he has ventured on to reality TV, starring on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

The pair are joined by some of the world’s largest entertainers who’ll perform a night of musical tributes to celebrate the event. I’m sure it’ll be quite the spectacle.

Plus, if you know the UK, we love a firework display, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see one of the best displays as the night rolls in.

Oh, and before I forget, if you’re a Great British Bake Off fan, I’ve heard rumours Mary Berry has a special TV show for you.


If you’re like me and can’t wait to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, you’ll want to tune in to the BBC to watch the live coverage.

However, if you’re outside the UK, you need to use a VPN like ExpressVPN.

Sign up to ExpressVPN today and get yourself ready to celebrate with Queen Lizzie.

It’s time to pop open the Pimm’s and raise your Union Jacks.
