June 2022 sees the historic celebration of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, including a Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral. To mark this unique event, our exhibition St Paul’s, the Monarch and the Changing World explores the grand ceremonial occasions held at the Cathedral to commemorate the Royal Jubilees of four British monarchs: George III, Victoria, George V and Elizabeth II.

Throughout its life at the heart of the capital, St Paul’s been a place of national celebration, reflection and commemoration, and the Jubilee Thanksgiving services held here have been some of the most spectacular we have ever hosted.

These Jubilee celebrations weave a thread of continuity through the social, political and technological changes in Britain over the past 200 years, and this fascinating exhibition introduces each monarch, their world, and the important part St Paul’s played in them all. With a wealth of material from our archives, we will tell these rich stories alongside photographs, prints and paintings, and treasures from our collection including remarkable, historic vestments for these magnificent occasions.
