Queen looks ahead to Platinum Jubilee

Her upcoming Platinum Jubilee year starts in February and will mark her 70 years on the throne. She is the longest-reigning monarch in British history, having overtaken her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria in 2015.

She said she hoped the jubilee would be a chance for people "to give thanks for the enormous changes of the last 70 years, social, scientific and cultural, and also to look ahead with confidence".
