Peter Rabbit takes a starring role in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Read Time:53 Second

The first major event marking the Platinum Jubilee has a brand new ambassador. Peter Rabbit will represent the Queen’s Green Canopy as it begins to unfold across the UK.

The famous fictional rabbit, created by Beatrix Potter, has been announced as a supporter of the scheme which calls on people across the country to plant a tree for the Jubilee.

Peter will help promote the scheme’s aims and its core message of helping the environment to children across the UK.

As the announcement was made, original sketches of Peter and his family were shared, showing them at the home Potter imagined for them, in the roots of a tree.

The Queen’s Green Canopy said ”We are excited to work together to help children learn about trees as a sanctuary for animals and encourage all to plant a tree for the jubilee.”

Peter Rabbit has his own, special celebration coming up in 2022. The character was created 120 years earlier, in 1902, and has been keeping children around the world entertained ever since.
