Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand was the most recent monarch to celebrate a platinum jubilee; he died shortly after official celebrations in Thailand took place.

The next currently reigning monarch who would celebrate a platinum jubilee is Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth Realms in February 2022. Preparations for the celebrations are slowly starting and a four-day Bank Holiday for June 2022 has been announced.[3]

A 75th anniversary can be referred to as a diamond jubilee occasionally,[4][5][6][7][8] but it is commonly used to refer to a 60th anniversary.[9] An anniversary of 100 years is simply called a centenary.[10]
