Stewart Lee, Managing Director of Publications UK, who worked with author Tom Corby MVO to produce the publication said: “It has been the greatest of privileges to be commissioned to publish the Official Programme for two Jubilees: the Diamond Jubilee in 2012, and this, the first-ever Platinum Jubilee.
“The Official Platinum Jubilee Programme is a beautifully illustrated publication covering all of the official celebrations planned for the Platinum weekend and highlighting many features of importance from Her Majesty’s dedicated 70-year reign.
“Our company has a long and distinguished history in publishing Royal commemoratives for landmark occasions, and I hope that this will serve as a treasured souvenir for the people of the United Kingdom and further afield to enjoy for many years to come.”
