Platinum Jubilee: 8 new cities created in Queen’s honour

BBC News says Eight new cities are being created for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, with at least one in every UK nation – and on the Falkland Islands and Isle of Man.

Milton Keynes in England, Dunfermline in Scotland, Bangor in Northern Ireland and Wrexham in Wales all get the title.

It is a first for places in an Overseas Territory – Stanley, in the Falklands – and a crown dependency – Douglas, in the Isle of Man – to win city status.

Colchester and Doncaster complete the list getting the royal honour.

Applicants had to show their cultural heritage and royal links.
