As the nation begins their jubilant festivities for the Queen’s record-breaking 70 years on the throne, MailOnline readers are showing off their best bakes, cakes, dressed-up scarecrows and even well-timed clouds which look like the shape of the UK, all for Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations… 

The first of a four-day bank holiday weekend for Great Britain begins with the Queen’s Birthday Parade, known as Trooping the Colour, which has been a tradition to honour the monarch for 260 years.

Her Majesty is set to make two appearances on the Buckingham Palace Balcony today, first to watch her son and heir, Prince Charles, who will inspect the troops of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards along with more than 1,500 officers and soldiers from the Household Division.

The procession will include at least 250 horses, hundreds of military musicians and members of the royal family will go on horseback during the parade. Prince Charles will be accompanied on horseback by Prince Willam and Anne, Princess Royal. 

Later on today, the Queen’s second appearance on Buckingham Palace balcony will be for the RAF flypast, whichwill see some 71 aircraft soar over The Mall in a historic display featuring Spitfires, Red Arrow Hawks and a Lancaster bomber. 

But for those not watching festivities unfold first-hand on The Mall, plenty have found other ways of honouring the Queen for this unprecedented celebration of Her Majesty’s 70 years on the throne.
