The office of the Deputy Governor's Office of the Cayman Islands has released the list of 2022 public holidays in the Cayman Islands, including, a one-off public holiday to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Most past years (2020-10-14, 2019-11-12, 2018-10-11, 2015-08-19, 2014-08-18, 2013-07-12, 2010-07-04 and 2009-03-20), though not all (2017-10-03, 2017-01-08, 2012-07-11 and 2011-06-25), the announcement of the Cayman Islands public holidays for the coming year specifies that the official date of the Queen's Birthday public holiday is unconfirmed and to be announced at a later date (2019-05-26, 2014-05-24 and 2013-01-04).

However, for 2022, the Queen's Birthday public holiday has been set for Monday, June 6, 2022, while a one-off public holiday was declared on Friday, June 3, 2022, on account of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Recall that, late last year (2020-11-12), the UK's culture secretary, Oliver Dowden, announced that an extra Platinum Jubilee public holiday would be declared on Friday, June 3, 2022, to mark Queen Elizabeth's 70th anniversary on the throne.

Since then, a few Commonwealth states and Crown Posessions have joined the UK in declaring a Platinum Jubilee public holiday (2021-11-05, 2021-11-02, 2021-10-29, 2021-10-21, 2021-08-28, 2021-08-06 and 2021-07-05).
