Season three of The Crown exhibits us some main milestones for the royal household, ending the season on Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee. The celebration, held in 1977, marked the 25th anniversary of Elizabeth’s accession to the throne, which was depicted early in season one after the demise of her father, King George VI. The celebrations included royal visits to 36 British counties, a Commonwealth tour for the Queen and Prince Philip, and a culminating sequence of celebrations in London throughout the Summer time of 1977.
Previous to the Queen’s celebration, solely a handful of queen regnants had reached a silver jubilee: her personal ancestor, Queen Victoria, celebrated hers in 1862, whereas Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands reached the milestone in 1923 and, solely a few years earlier than Queen Elizabeth’s celebration, her modern (and Wilhelmina’s successor) Queen Juliana celebrated 25 years on the Dutch throne. Forward, you’ll be able to take a look at a few of the photographs of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee to match to The Crown‘s model.
