This Little Piggy Met the Queen

Published on: 4th May 2012

Peppa Pig will be celebrating the Diamond Jubilee 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 UK television premiere of The Queen will take place during the Jubilee bank holiday weekend on Monday 4th June at 8.15am on Channel 5’s Milkshake!

On the day of the broadcast Jen will be joined in the studio by a Peppa Pig costume character for a Jubilee party.  This special episode starts a run of 13 brand new Peppa Pig episodes on Milkshake! weekdays at 8.15am.

Viewers will have another chance to catch the episode on Nick Jr. where it will be shown on 4th and 5th June and a range of fun party and activity assets will be available for children and parents to download for free from the official Peppa Pig website; www.peppapig.com.

Prior to the television broadcast, The Queen will also be released on DVD on 21st May and a book based on the episode entitled Peppa Meets the Queen was published by Ladybird on 3rd May.

Phil Davies, Producer of Peppa Pig said: “As a British production it’s only fitting that Peppa Pig pays tribute to the Queen and we couldn’t resist the opportunity to put her into the show. We hope that everyone enjoys watching the episode as much as we enjoyed making it and that it gets children into the Jubilee party spirit!”
