We’re in a celebratory mood this week as our special 100-page bumper Jubilee edition of My Weekly goes on sale. At 96, the Queen continues to inspire and amaze us with her dedication to duty and her country, even in the face of the sad loss of her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh last year. Her stoic, steadfast approach to life is a joy to behold and we will certainly be raising a glass, along with the rest of the country, as we mark the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee. The latest issue of My Weekly is our small way of saying thank you to Her Majesty.
My Weekly bumper Jubilee issue is on sale from May 24-31, available at supermarkets, newsagents and as a subscription. You can also save money by receiving the magazine as a digital subscription, straight to your tablet or computer. Take a look inside our Jubilee edition…
