London celebrations

London weather: Exactly when Londoners will bask in highs of 23C over the Bank Holidays

With Platinum Jubilee celebrations beginning today (June 2), many of us are hoping the weather will hold. After all, what could be better than rubbing shoulders with your compatriots in the sun while celebrating Her Majesty who has been seated on the throne for 70 years.

Some may host barbecues, picnics, while others may opt to head to Buckingham Palace to try and catch a glimpse of the Queen in person. But no matter what, people hope and pray for the sun.

And people are lucky because heaven has chosen to warm us on this holiday. In fact, according to The Met Office tomorrow (June 3) could see highs of 23C. Yes please!

That’s what we’re here for!

By 3 p.m. Friday, the thermostats will have climbed to 23C, which is absolutely scorching hot. So if you’re outside enjoying the heat, be sure to wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water.

The Queen is the first British monarch to celebrate a platinum jubilee after 70 years of service. She was only 27 when she was crowned, after her father George VI died of lung cancer.

Trooping the Color will take place today at 10 a.m. and will end around 12:25 p.m. Beginning at Buckingham Palace, the parade will descend through the Mall to Horse Guards Parade, joined by members of the Royal Family on horseback and carriages.

The parade will end with the traditional RAF flyby, watched by the Queen and members of the Royal Family from the balcony of Buckingham Palace. More than 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians will gather for the event, and people will be able to watch for free from the streets.
