In Pictures: Legoland marks Platinum Jubilee with its own miniature pageant

31 May 2022

The Platinum Jubilee celebrations are well under way at Legoland with a pageant in miniature marking the 70-year reign of the Queen.

Modellers at Legoland Windsor assembled bricks to mark the monarch’s milestone including a picnic scene at Windsor Castle.

Royal staples such as a ride down The Mall, a balcony scene and even a Red Arrows flypast were also put together.

No royal celebration would be complete without a balcony scene as the model Queen joined family members to bask in acclaim from her people while a Red Arrows flypast provided the traditional finale.
