Jaguar Land Rover celebrates The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
As the Queen celebrates her Platinum Jubilee (90 years on the throne), Jaguar Land Rover celebrate her continued success with a host of their most popular vehicles in the Platinum Jubilee Pageant. The fleet will include two of Her Majesty’s beloved Land Rover Defenders and several historically important Jaguar E-types. A Jaguar XKR from Die Another Day is joined by Land Rovers from Skyfall and No Time To Die. A specially commissioned, bespoke 1965 Series 1 Jaguar E-type Roadster will also make its public debut in the Parade.
To further commemorate the Queen’s 70 years of dedicated service, Land Rover is giving the British Red Cross a new Defender 130 to support its operations in the UK.
Other Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles of note participating in the Pageant include the first Land Rover the world ever saw, unveiled at the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show. In a celebration of Jaguar’s move towards an all-electric future, the parade will feature a Jaguar F-PACE Electric Hybrid in a bespoke livery designed with drumming sensation Nandi Bushell and an all-electric I-PACE from the E-Trophy racing series.
The vibrant and colourful procession will cover a 3km route taking in The Mall and Buckingham Palace, echoing the route of the Coronation 70 years ago. It will feature more than 10,000 volunteers and creatives celebrating each of the Queen’s seven decades on the throne through a carnival of art, music, theatre and dance. The Jaguars and Land Rovers will feature throughout the parade with notable brand fans and cultural icons aboard, from Bear Grylls to Dame Joan Collins.
