The Royal Mint will today release a commemorative £5 coin to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday – its design unveiled here exclusively in The Mail on Sunday.

Created by artist and sculptor Christopher Hobbs, the coin features a classical garland of nine roses – one for each of the Queen’s decades – as well as the Royal cypher ‘EIIR’, and number 90.

The £5 coin comes in a variety of finishes and metals including silver, gold and platinum gold, with prices from £20 to an astonishing £5,000 for a rare platinum edition.

The Queen turns 90 on April 21 but including her age on the coin was a controversial move, Mr Hobbs said. ‘I thought it was important to have the 90 prominently on the coin, but I was told it raised a few eyebrows at the palace,’ he told The Mail on Sunday.

‘Apparently it’s not the done thing pointing out the Queen’s age but I think in this case it was absolutely necessary and the point was taken. I am told the design was submitted to the Queen and she passed it.’

A schoolgirl from Stamford has been selected as finalist in a nationwide competition to design a birthday cake to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday and be sold in supermarkets.

Budding designers were asked by Waitrose to create and design the retailer’s official cake to celebrate the historic occasion, with hundreds of entrants narrowed down to just five finalists from across the UK.


Tilly Chisholm, from Stamford, was among the five finalists who were invited to meet the judges at the final stage of the competition at the Waitrose Cookery School in King’s Cross.

I just checked and it was taken down.

I think you need to keep checking as it appears the person or people are putting it on youtube and it stays for several days before being taken down.

Those are really wonderful and puzzling gowns! I had never seen those items before, nor did I thought the queen was much the type to wear that style! Thanks eya!

I'd imagine it will be a very interesting exhibition and will attract a lot of extra visitors to the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

The creations in her wardrobe has calmed down these days, but so much beautiful details were applied to her dresses back in the day. She was a very fashionable in her day.

For anyone who still hasn't seen Our Queen at 90, I just watched it on dailymotion.com. It's in 7 parts, but it is all there.

The Queen in Windsor: 90th birthday

The Queen will undertake engagements in Windsor in the week of her 90th birthday.

Wednesday 20th April

The first engagement is a visit to the Royal Mail Windsor delivery office on William St, Windsor. This visit marks the 500th Anniversary of the Postal Service. The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will meet Mrs Moya Greene, the Chief Executive Officer of Royal Mail, and Mr Peter Long, the Chairman of the Royal Mail Group and will see the operation of the Caller's Office. This is where customers collect items that are not delivered to their home or business. Staff on duty will explain how the system works and there will be an opportunity to see how modern technology enables customers to track items.

The Queen and The Duke will then have an opportunity to see how postmen and women sort mail ahead of delivery, and meet staff, including some who have given many years of service. Before they leave, Her Majesty and His Royal Highness will view an exhibition highlighting some of the key events, people and developments in the history of Royal Mail over the last half millennium and unveil a plaque marking the visit. While the visit takes place, The Royal Mail choir made up of frontline staff from Bristol will sing. They were formed as part of a BBC television series "The Choir: Sing While You Work". They regularly perform around the UK, raising funds for good causes.

The second engagement is a visit to Alexandra Gardens for a ceremony to officially open the new Bandstand. The Queen, accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh, will arrive at the Barry Avenue entrance where they will be received by Mr James Puxley, Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire. They will view an exhibition about the Bandstand and the school’s workshops which informed the design of the six commemorative plaques fixed to its railings. They will then meet school children from the six schools involved in the bandstand's decoration: Alexander First, Braywood, Dedworth Green First, Dedworth Middle, Queen Anne, Royal School as well as the designers and builders of the bandstand. A children’s choir will perform four short songs followed by a performance of Shakespeare as part of the School's Shakespeare Festival. Prior to departure The Queen will ascend the bandstand to unveil a plaque marking the day.

Thursday 21st April

The Queen, accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh will undertake a walkabout in Windsor.

Her Majesty and His Royal Highness will walk from the Henry VIII Gate of Windsor Castle towards the Statute of Queen Victoria at the foot of Castle Hill. Here Her Majesty will unveil a plaque marking The Queen's Walkway.

The Queen’s Walkway is a 6.3km self-guided walking trail connecting 63 points of significance in the town of Windsor. The Walkway was designed by The Outdoor Trust to symbolically recognise the moment that Her Majesty became Britain’s longest reigning monarch after more than 63 years on 9 September 2015. It builds on the success of the Jubilee Walkway in London, the first urban walking trail in the world, opened by The Queen in 1977 in celebration of her Silver Jubilee. Excitingly, the bronze EIIR crested markers, embossed panel and promotional app have now also inspired a parallel network of Walkways throughout all 71 Nations and Territories of The Commonwealth in recognition of The Queen’s service as Head of

The Commonwealth for more than 63 years. A dozen Walkways are already in development in various countries and Her Majesty launched the first complete route in Malta as part of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in November 2015. By 2018 it is hoped that there will be 100 Commonwealth Walkways, connecting 5,000 rich and diverse points of significance, uniting the Commonwealth.

In the evening, The Queen, accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, will light a beacon and view two further beacons being lit along Long Walk and at Copper Horse.

The Queen will light the principal beacon which will set in train a series of over 900 beacons across the country and worldwide. Beacons large and small, either specially built gas-fuelled structures or simple bonfires, will be lit across the country to mark The Queen's 90th Birthday, and individuals have been asked to attend a beacon-lighting event in their area, hosted by their local authority.
It's a bit disappointing that the walkabout is so short, but not surprising. The Queen hasn't gone on a proper walkabout since 2012, due to her age/knee problems. But what I don't understand is why they can't drive her around in a golf buggy, as they did with the Queen Mother.

Royal walkabouts are becoming rare for the royals to do because of security reasons. Not even the young royals do it like they used to.

Yes I know, and I've written about it here on the forum before. But I don't think that the length of the birthday walkabout has nothing to do with security and as I said in my above post, the Queen hasn't gone on a proper walkabout since 2012, due to her age/knee problems.
