Queen's Students Attend Queen's Jubliee
Two of the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Student Representatives attended the Queen's Jubilee event on 4 June 2022
Here is Jamie-Lukas' testimonial on the event. Jamie-Lukas is the PG Student Representative for the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics:
"The Queen’s Jubilee Platinum Party Concert was an outstanding experience I’ll not soon forget. More than 17,000 people, including senior ministers, members of the royal family, and international supporters, came out to mark the occasion that featured respected music sensations and popular UK icons. The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge delivered special remarks, expressing their gratitude to the Queen and renewed calls for public commitments to sustainability. My personal highlights of the night include Ms Banks' collaboration with Duran Duran, Alicia Keys' iconic "New York," Andrea Bocelli's moving performance, Rod Stewart's "Sweet Caroline," and Diana Ross's close. The BBC's production designers went above and beyond with their incredible light show and a first-of-its-kind drone performance atop Buckingham Palace. I am grateful to have had an opportunity to attend the event as a Queen's student –– it was truly a concert for Queen's fit for a queen!"
