Land Rover Queen’s Platinum Jubilee


Jaguar Land Rover was honoured to be a part of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, with 26 of its cars featuring in the Platinum Jubilee Pageant on June 5. Land Rover is also giving the British Red Cross a new Defender 130 to support its UK operations as a way to further commemorate the Queen’s 70 incredible years of service.

Chris Thorp, Chief of Staff, Jaguar Land Rover, said, “It is a true honour for our vehicles to play a part in this momentous occasion to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee. As the UK’s longest reigning monarch, Head of the Commonwealth, patron of more than 600 charities as well as a mother, grandmother and great grandmother, the Queen is a remarkable role model and we are delighted to celebrate with her today.”

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant was designed as a celebration of the creativity and ingenuity of the people of the UK and Commonwealth during the Queen’s reign. The 3km route, taking in the Mall and Buckingham Palace, reflects the route taken during the Queen’s coronation 70 years ago. It featured two of Her Majesty’s beloved Land Rover Defenders, along with three Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles from James Bond films, and a collection of rare Jaguar convertibles.

Land Rover has supported the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies since 1954. Our engineers will work with the Red Cross to adapt the Defender 130 before it goes into service. As the longest version of the vehicle ever produced, the modified version will support emergency response and ambulance support work. The Defender 130’s off-road capabilities will give the Red Cross the freedom to access remote areas and reach people affected by emergencies and disasters.
