Queen Elizabeth II is the first-ever British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne.

The year of her Platinum Jubilee began on February 6, 2022, after the then Princess Elizabeth ascended to the throne following the death of her father, King George VI.

As the UK prepares for a long weekend of celebration to mark the Platinum Jubilee, including the famous Trooping the Colour, we look back at the Queen’s long-standing relationship with the Middle East.

After 70 years of dedicated service, Her Majesty has paid a visit to the GCC on several occasions.

From widening the bond between the nations to appreciating decades of friendship with other GCC royals, it comes to show, that this monarch is certainly well-travelled.
