On 6th February 2022, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, seventy years of service, having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952 when she was just 25 years old.
In celebration of this historic occasion, we are launching three new royal-themed jigsaw puzzles.
This popular jigsaw - full of royal smiles - has been reissued to rejoice at her extraordinary seventy-year reign. As the longest serving British head of state and the world's oldest reigning monarch, our amazing Queen is possibly the most photographed person in history. In this jigsaw we see her many expressions - regal, joyful, intrigued, thoughtful, happy... and glorious. This 1000-piece puzzle has been created by the talented Robert Opie.
This glorious montage puzzle celebrates the highs of her Majesty's reign, from her Commonwealth visits to the 2012 London Olympics. Puzzlers will be recognise these highlights as they piece together this 1000-piece jigsaw created by Victor McLindon.
This 4x500 piece multi-box jigsaw puzzle, illustrated by Daniel Rodgers, depicts four of the events taking place over the four day long UK Bank Holiday weekend in June: The Derby at Epsom Downs, the Party at the Palace concert, the Queen’s Carriage as part of Trooping the Colour and of course, a street party for The Great Jubilee Lunch!
Other British-themed Jigsaws
This 1000 piece puzzle celebrates the figures that have made Britain what it is today….in pigeon form! Illustrated by the talented Alice Tams, this jigsaw puzzle is filled with weird, whacky and rather feathery versions of some much-loved British talent…who can you spot?
London is one of the world's most iconic travel destinations. It has something for everyone from history to culture, art to architecture. Visitors to London enjoy an abundance of galleries, museums and popular tourist attractions such as the London Eye and Buckingham Palace, interspersed between beautiful parks and open spaces.
The city is immersed in history and tourists all over the world come to discover the narrow little lanes and ancient Inns alongside impressive buildings such as Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London.

From the highlands and islands of Scotland, the emerald isle of Northern Ireland, the valleys and choirs of Wales to England’s green and pleasant lands, Britain truly is blessed. Artist Maria Rabinsky has adorned the British Isles with a beautiful assortment of iconic and characterful images that will be familiar to many of us.

Puzzling with Gibsons
With all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one – we hope she’ll like our Jubilee jigsaws!
We’ve made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know that they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap to reduce our plastic waste. There is a gloss coating on the box for extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.
Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
