Tomorrow marks the start of a spectacular four-day bank holiday weekend in honor of the Queen’s 70th reign.

She is the first British monarch to ever reach this milestone and the nation is preparing to go all out with her celebrations.

More than 16,000 street parties are expected to take place over the weekend, while more than 1,500 bonfires will be lit for Her Majesty by communities across the country.

Some die-hard fans of the royal family are already camping out at The Mall to ensure they get a good spot for all the pageantry at Buckingham Palace.

It all starts tomorrow – the first bank holiday of the week – starting with the Trooping the Color ceremony.

The military parade has been held to mark the monarch’s official birthday for more than 260 years, but this one will be very special.

The 1st Battalion of the Irish Guards and more than 1,200 officers and men from the Household Division make an appearance along with hundreds of army musicians and around 240 horses.

There will also be a royal gun salute and a flyby where the legendary Red Arrows, a Lancaster bomber, Supermarine Spitfires and Hawker Hurricanes will hover over London.

When and what time is the anniversary flight?

The famous Red Arrows will arrive at Buckingham Palace at around 12:40pm

After Trooping the Color took off at 11:00 a.m., the overflight time should begin at around 11:45 a.m. if the weather is fine.

The aircraft depart from the Wash in East Anglia and fly across the North Sea towards Buckingham Palace at around 12.40pm.

They will pass parts of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Kent before making their way to London.

Aircraft will also fly over parts of Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.
