McDonald’s makes changes, deals and opening hours over Platinum Jubilee weekend

McDonald’s will be joining the nation when it celebrates the Platinum Jubilee over the four-day bank holiday weekend. The momentous occasion, which marks 70 years since the Queen’s accession, kicks off on Thursday, June 2.

The unprecedented anniversary has seen a big reshuffle in the 2022 calendar, with the spring bank holiday, which usually lands on the last Monday in May, moved to June 2, while an extra one has been added on Friday, June 3 for the Queen’s Jubilee..

If you’re planning to head to fast-food chain McDonald’s over the long weekend, you might notice some changes. The fast-food chain has temporarily changed its iconic slogan and is also launching a limited-edition china packaging.
