The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Assembly on the English Monarchy takes us from Alfred the Great to Elizabeth II. With a cast of 30 (easily adapted up or down) and lasting approximately 10 – 15 minutes, it focuses on Queen Elizabeth’s ancestry – a quick gallop through the English monarchy!
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Assembly on the English Monarchy is one of four Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Assemblies now available off the website. The other three are:
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee assembly – about the Queen and her life, family, achievements etc. This is available for KS I and II (separate scripts)
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee assembly on the years 1952 – 2022 – an adaptation of my History of Rock n Roll assembly. This covers world events but with a musical twist (up to 35 suggested songs!)
Cast of 30
Duration: Around 10 minutes not including music.
There is also a complete listing of all our kings and queens.
Queen: Ah! Thank you so much! One really does appreciate simple creature comforts as one gets older. It’s easy enough to forget that when you’re a queen!
Narrator: I’m sure you’re right!
Queen: Undoubtedly! But I’m not here to lecture you this morning! It is for you and your delightful children to tell me all about my delightful ancestors! (Turning to cast) I believe you have been studying them in history? How fascinating for you!
Narrator: Oh, indeed it has been, ma’am. And we do hope you will also learn a few things that maybe you hadn’t known before about your forbears!
Queen: Ooh! I can’t wait! Such a delightful lot, us royals!
Narrator: (Aside) Oh oh! Something tells me the Queen may have a few shocks in store! I hope she takes it in the right spirit – or I could shortly find myself a little uncomfortable ….in the Tower!
Child 1: This morning we’d like to start with the present royal family – the House of Windsor. There’s (holding up picture of William) William, now happily married to Kate – sorry, Katherine, the Duchess of Cambridge!
Child 2: William is the eldest son of (holds up picture) Charles, the Prince of Wales – now married to Camilla.
Child 3: (Holding up picture) William’s mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, was tragically killed in a road accident in 1997 when William was 15 years old.
Child 4: (Holding up picture) William has a younger brother, Harry.
Child 5: William and Harry have a rather important grandma – the Queen!
Queen: At last! I wondered how long it would take you to get to me!
