Philip – the man the Queen described as her “strength and stay” – was married to the monarch for 73 years and devoted decades of his life to royal duty. He died at the age of 99 in April last year during the pandemic, leaving the Queen grieving for her lifelong confidant.

If that weren’t enough, other tributes to Philip will appear in the pageant, with a Bollywood-inspired interpretation of the Queen and the duke’s wedding day. A 20ft (6m) wedding cake, housing a sound system playing classic Bollywood anthems and accompanied by 250 Bollywood dancers, will process down The Mall in a reimagining of their 1947 marriage celebration.

A representation of Philip’s beloved sailing boat Bluebottle will feature in the section devoted to the “Queen’s Favorites,” which will also include puppet corgis and horses. The Platinum Jubilee is the first major milestone the Queen has celebrated without Philip, who had been at her side during the ups and downs of her long reign.

Meanwhile, the Sex Pistols are set to rerelease their controversial 1977 protest song God Save The Queen to mark the Queen of England’s Platinum Jubilee in June. The single was first officially released by the band on Richard Branson’s Virgin record label in May 1977 and caused outrage across the British establishment. t was banned by the BBC but reached No. 2 on the UK’s singles chart. The band had already had a fractious relationship with the music industry and were dropped by their previous label A&M, which led to 25,000 unreleased copies of God Save The Queen being destroyed.
