Her Majesty the Queen is celebrating 70 years on the throne - the first British monarch to ever reach a Platinum Jubilee.
Jubilee celebrations in the UK date back to 1809. This will be the Queen’s fourth, following her Silver (1977), Golden (2002) and Diamond (2012) Jubilee events.
This year’s celebrations will culminate in a four-day UK bank holiday running from today until Sunday.
All the pictures on this week’s retro page were taken back in 2002 at the Golden Jubilee, with the exception of the main image, which shows the Queen visiting the Great Yorkshire Show during her Silver Jubilee year in 1977.
