In 2022, Queen Elizabeth II will be the first British monarch to celebrate 70 years on the throne.

Street parties and events will mark the Platinum Jubilee all through the four-day bank holiday, which will take place from June 2 to 5.

At this newspaper, we have taken a look back at many of the special visits our Queen has made to east and north London.

There are photos of Her Majesty looking around the Royal Free Hospital, shaking hands with the future Prime Minister Boris Johnson in Ilford, learning about matchbox models in Hackney Wick and meeting her counterparts in the East End - the Pearly Kings and Queens.

She also has been treated to a roar-some welcome at London Zoo and been shown around Whitechapel Bell Foundry, as well as greeting pupils at schools in Havering.
