Her Majesty ‘won’t live at Buckingham Palace again’ making Windsor move permanent ahead of Jubilee

Platinum Jubilee to open US relations

Royal expert and former adviser of US-UK relations, Lee Cohen, spoke to Express.co.uk about the benefits the Platinum Jubilee has on wider international relations.

Mr Cohen said it was “ironic” that there is no holiday celebrating America’s history with the UK, and believed the Platinum Jubilee could bolster the relationship between the US and the UK.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Cohen was asked what benefits could be seen from the Platinum Jubilee.

He explained: “The Jubilee is an occasion to celebrate a great person and her achievements. 

“But it is also a reminder for those who would like to forget, and those who were never taught, that, as Americans our heritage, values, and cherished freedoms were born in England and Britain. 

“In [the US], we celebrate Irish pride, Puerto Rican pride, and commemorate Black History, LGBT history, and many others.

“It is ironic, and perhaps telling, that there are no celebrations of our English and British heritage that gave rise to our truly great and unique nation.  

“I will take the Jubilee as an opportunity to celebrate all that the USA and the Anglosphere owe to our mother country. 

“The Queen is the living embodiment, not only of that country, but she represents an era through which all of us alive today have lived and thus we are shared celebrants in her momentous anniversary.”
