Buckingham Palace has confirmed that the UK’s long-running tradition of celebrating Royal Jubilees, weddings and coronations with the lighting of beacons will also take place on this day.
Beacons will also be lit in each of the capital cities of Commonwealth nations for the first time ever.
As the four-day bank holiday begins on Thursday, the 96-year-old will lead the Royal family and the nation in the celebrations.
