Prince Richard joined pupils from Park Lane Primary School in Park Lane, to pick up litter in King Edward Park as part of a campaign by Keep Britain Tidy to clear up the country ahead of The Queen’s official 90th birthday in June.

The Duke, who is a first cousin to Queen Elizabeth II and 24th in line to the throne, said: “If we can use Clean For The Queen to make people think about the damage that litter can do, it will be a very valuable exercise.

“I know it will give great pleasure to Her Majesty to know that her birthday has created something so wonderful which will help us to all look after our beautiful country.”

"Cadet, would you stand before the Queen in those boots?!"

That phrase, so often shouted in training sessions for the RCMP Musical Ride, now carries a lot more meaning for Const. Sean Roche.

A team of Mounties and their equine partners will be flying to Britain in May to take part in a special five-day celebration of the Queen's 90th birthday.

More than 900 horses from all over the Commonwealth will be taking part, including the Canadian contingent.

"It's pretty exciting, it's pretty neat," Roche said.

He'll be performing with his partner Visty, a 15-year-old Hanoverian mare standing 17 hands tall.

Collectible souvenirs for Queen's 90th birthday slated - The Scotsman
Quote:
Mr Gerrard, who is head of product design consultancy Gerrard and Medd, was the Scottish representative on the selection committee for approved souvenirs for the 1981 marriage of Prince Charles and Diana.

He expressed his astonishment that the gold-encrusted china, decorated in forget-me-nots and cornflowers – which traditionally flower in April, the month the monarch was born, and in June, the month of her official birthday – was chosen as the official Royal Collection Trust range.

“Quite who decided on producing such ephemeral objects to commemorate a monarch of the technological age, I cannot imagine,” he said.

I hope Britian and Commonwealth really get out and make these celebrations an event like no other. The Queen is now in the last years of her life. Let's go above and beyond in celebrating her life and say thank you to her for her many years of service and dedication.

Although it may not mean a hill of beans, I'm getting into the spirit of things here on a mountain in West Virginia and going to do an extensive spring cleaning around here. I love the expression "Clean for the Queen". I'm also really looking forward to seeing as much of the celebrations I can and follow them extensively here at TRF.

She is one extraordinary lady and deserves extraordinary celebrations. Even me with my mop and bucket.

The Queen was dragged into a dramatic row over the European Union referendum amid warnings that Downing Street could try to hijack her 90th birthday celebrations to boost the case for staying in the EU.

Senior sources warned that they were worried the Queen could come under pressure to show her support for Britain's continuing EU membership during her official 90th birthday celebrations in mid-June.

Preparations are under way for a weekend of celebrations to honour the Queen’s official 90th birthday in mid-June, including a service at St Paul’s Cathedral and a street party for 10,000 guests in The Mall.

However, there are fears that the government could try to “spin” the events – and any message to the nation from the Queen – to bolster the case for the Remain campaign in the referendum vote that will be held 11 days later.

One said: “There is concern that she could be asked to drop a hint. The Palace is determined to protect the Queen this year.”

I think after many, many years on the throne, HM would be wise to any political ploy to "spin" anything that she happens to say. Other than maybe expressing her gratitude for the well wishes from the people, she will say absolutely nothing.

She is *the* mistress of tact and diplomacy.

Image of Queen 20 times smaller than human hair carved to celebrate 90th birthday | Royal | News | Daily Express
Quote:
Graham Short spent three months carving the world’s smallest picture of Her Majesty, which at five microns is a 20th of the thickness of a human hair.

The image is invisible to the naked eye and can only be seen with a medical microscope at 400x magnification.

It took Mr Short, 69, around 30 attempts before he was able to complete it. Engraving at such a level requires an almost superhuman effort and dedication.

Mr Short said: “I take potassium, magnesium and beta-blockers during the night in an effort to lower my heart rate.

“Then, while wearing a stethoscope, I engrave using the finest needles possible between my heart beats.

“I work from midnight to 5.30am to avoid vibration from passing traffic. If a lorry passes a few blocks away I can feel it through the microscope.”

He also has a regular course of Botox injections into his eyelids to “prevent distraction”.

Next month the Queen will become the first reigning British monarch to reach her 90th birthday.

Birmingham based Mr Short, who also engraves all the stationery for the royal residences, said: “Artists all over Britain will be producing portraits of the Queen. I wanted to do something really special, something that none of the seven billion people on the planet could comprehend.”

Ascot to rename Gold Cup to honour Queen's 90th birthday - BBC Sport
Quote:
This year's Gold Cup at the Royal meeting will be renamed to mark the Queen's 90th birthday, Ascot racecourse has announced.

The two-and-a-half mile race, won by Her Majesty's Estimate in 2013, will now be called the Gold Cup in Honour of The Queen's 90th birthday.

Her Majesty's representative at Ascot, Johnny Weatherby, said the Queen is "delighted" by the decision.

The race, which will be run on 16 June, will revert to the Gold Cup in 2017.
Volunteers pick litter ahead of Queen's 90th birthday | London - ITV News

Gloves were on and bags were hand as volunteers gave up their Sunday out in the cold to clean for the Queen in Kensington.

It's a government backed idea asking people to spend a few hours picking up litter ahead of the Queen's 90th birthday.

Well... for starters there's a lot of planning that goes into it which may take a month. So I figure with HM's actual birth date in April and the official birthday in June, I've plenty of leeway to really get things done and done right just as all the planning for the extravaganzas are being done with utmost care. Gotta rope in the crew here and get them on board for the project. I really don't think our Dawg is going to be much help.

Thanks Duke of Marmalade.

That's unfair towards QEII.
She's going on 90 and she's a product of her time. No one can expect her to be fully up to date on what is currently politically correct.

The DM is doing a stories of stories for the the Queen's 90th birthday.

Considering it's Richard Kay And Geoffrey Levy doing the 'writing', we need to take it with a 1000 grains of salt. Remember the headline - "Royal Reporters make it all up, doesn't everyone know that?"

Might be a bit off topic, though that's nothing unusual when I'm involved, but does the UK parliament have a say in the rules of the Church of England concerning for example who should be able to get married or not?
