IF you can’t attend a street party to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, there’s another way from the comfort of your own home.
A virtual party has arrived on Minecraft, with all the cake, champagne and bunting you would expect for a big royal occasion.
There’s even a stunning fireworks and light show over Buckingham Palace in the evening.
The royal residence, as well as Pall Mall outside, have been cleverly recreated by Minecraft genius Ushio Tokura.
It took the artist 650 hours over two weeks to complete using 45million individual blocks.
The virtual space is about 830,000 square feet.

Players can explore Pall Mall, where they will find crowds gathering next to the Queen’s Guard, kitted out in a special platinum coloured jacket to mark the occasion.
And no party celebrating Queen Elizabeth II would be complete without something related to corgis.
Users will find a number of activities dotted around the place, including pin the tail on the corgi.
Anyone with Minecraft can download the special Jubilee street party for free.
It’s available via planetminecraft.com.
Tech firm NVIDIA commissioned the project to showcase its GeForce RTX GPU (Graphics Processing Unit).
