What a wonderful pic..... and with a grain of British Humor with little George! LOOOOOVE it

It looks to me like George is holding on to his daddy's thumb, which is adorable.

The Queen's 90th Birthday Celebrations Begin

Queen's birthday:*Monarch begins celebrations with Royal Mail depot day before she turns 90
Quote:
Britain’s longest-serving monarch met Britain’s longest-serving postman today as she shared the start of her 90th birthday celebrations with Royal Mail’s 500th anniversary.

Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh arrived at the main sorting office in Windsor, after making the short journey from Windsor Castle, to begin the first official engagement of her birthday week.

The Queen, whose birthday is on Thursday, was greeted by a cheering crowd of hundreds of invited guests who had gathered in the car park to wish her an early Happy Birthday.
And doesn't she look great:

BBC One Programmes April 21st 2016:

The Day I Met The Queen- 9:15am
"People recall what it's like to meet Her Majesty The Queen".

The Queen's 90th Birthday: 11am
"Kirsty Young presents live coverage of Her Majesty the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations from Royal Windsor. Together with His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen embarks on a walkabout through the town to greet well-wishers, as she becomes the first reigning British monarch to celebrate this milestone. Kirsty is joined by a host of well-known faces to celebrate this very special day."

Elizabeth at 90: A Family Tribute- 9pm
"A unique celebration of the Queen's ninety years as she reaches her landmark birthday in April. Film-maker John Bridcut has been granted special access to the complete collection of Her Majesty's personal ciné films, shot by the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen herself, as well as by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. Much of it has never been seen publicly before.

Various members of the Royal Family are filmed watching this private footage and contributing their own personal insights and their memories of the woman they know both as a member of their own close family and as queen.

Among those taking part are the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge, Prince Harry, the Princess Royal, the Duke of Kent and his sister Princess Alexandra, who has never before given an interview."

Here's a nice article with a lot of interesting links.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/21/wo...-90-birth.html

Don't miss the "Queen of Parts" link which shows a sculpture of HM made from auto parts.

The Queen at 90 - ITV News

LISTEN: Blue Cross rescue animals sing the Queen Happy Birthday | Royal | News | Daily Express

The Queen at 90 in 90 photographs - News

Just another day at the office as One turns 90 | | The Times & The Sunday Times
Quote:
It was a cross between a warm-up and a dress rehearsal: the Queen’s birthday, Part 1.

On the day before she turns 90, the sovereign was out and about in Windsor today, meeting the country’s longest-serving postal worker and opening a bandstand.

It was in a sense just another working day for the country’s longest-reigning — and oldest — monarch, only with added crowds and television cameras.

I don't know. I also wonder how the newspapers will cover it. When she turned 80, the front pages were full of it, but I'm guessing that most of the paper goes with Victoria Wood tonight.

Don't forget: The Queen At 90: Tonight At 9pm - Documentary where William, Edward and Sophie are interviewed. I've posted the link above in post 408.

Just watched it. The program was very nice and insightful. To hear Prince Edward talk about the difficulties in being on school break as a young kid, and not having their parents around at the same time was something new.

I just read on another forum that the 4 generations picture was taken in June last year. That must be why George is wearing the same clothes he wore in Charlotte's first pictures.
