“Peppa Pig” will pay homage to the Diamond Jubilee (a series of events in the U.K. celebrating 60 years of The Queen’s reign) later this year with a special episode starring Her Majesty the Queen. It will mark the first time in the show’s history that a human character will be featured in the series and a host of marketing activity is planned to run around the broadcast to get children involved with the Jubilee celebrations. The U.K. television premiere of “The Queen” is scheduled for June 4 Channel 5’s milkshake! Prior to the television broadcast, “The Queen” will also be released on DVD May 21, and a book based on the episode, entitled Peppa Meets the Queen, was released by Ladybird Books Thursday.
