The celebrations were at Windsor where she did a walkabout and later lit a beacon.

Otherwise it was just the normal birthday celebrations with the gun salutes.

The next round of celebrations are in May - at the Royal Windsor Horse Show - again at Windsor.

The London celebrations are on the weekend of the 10-12th June:

10th June - the church service at St Paul's
11th June - Trooping the Colour
12th June - the party in the Mall

You're right and I was aware of that, as I've watched coverage of her celebrations on TV this evening, I'd made a careless error (to be fair, it's late here and I'm getting sleepy, haha). I knew about those dates too but thank you for reminding me, it appears that nothing is happening in London then, as I had thought.

I hope there will be something special added to the Trooping of the Colour this year.

I don't think this is true, but the Norwegian expert Kjell Arne Totland who is very reliable says on Norwegian television that there will be foreign guests in june.

I really enjoyed seeing those photos, Queen Camilla, and thanks for posting them. I really got a chuckle out of a mainstay business we all know changing from Burger King to Burger Queen in honor of HM. Now that's a serious compliment.

What a beautiful cake it was too. Just perfect for the World's Most Famous Corgi Lover.

It looked like a perfect Spring day for the day's events and Her Majesty appeared to be enjoying herself on her very Special Birthday.

Here's hoping it's just like this in June for the Official Celebrations.

Happy Birthday Ma'am!!!

The official birthday cake, and thus the one the Queen cut, wasn't the one with the corgi on it. That one was made by a fan and will end up at a hospital or somewhere else - sadly maybe even in the bin given health and safety concerns.

Could also be that there will be foreign royals for the celebrations in Max like for the Diamond Jubilee.

Posts about the Queen and the Duke's private lunch with President Obama and the First Lady have been moved. You can find the discussion in the Queen Elizabeth and Duke of Edinburgh Current Events thread.

I post this here, because this is not about the lunch they had together.

I watched the Joint Press Conference Cameron and Obama live on Sky News yesterday and the President started his remarks by saying:

Quote:
I confess I've also come back to wish Her Majesty the Queen a very happy 90th birthday. Earlier today, Michelle and I had the honor to join Her Majesty and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh as their guests at Windsor Castle, where we conveyed the good wishes of the American people.

I have to say I have never been driven by a Duke of Edinburgh before. (Laughter.) And I can report that it was very smooth riding. As for Her Majesty, the Queen has been a source of inspiration for me, like so many people around the world. She is truly one of my favorite people. And should we be fortunate enough to reach 90, may we be as vibrant as she is. She’s an astonishing person, and a real jewel to the world and not just to the United Kingdom.
And later in the Press Conference he said:
Quote:
I have a staff member, who will not be named -- because it might embarrass her a little bit -- who, generally, on foreign trips, does not leave the hotel or the staff room because she’s constantly doing work making this happen. She has had one request the entire time that I have been President, and that is, could she accompany me to Windsor on the off-chance that she might get a peek at Her Majesty the Queen. And, gracious as she is, Her Majesty actually had this person, along with a couple of others, lined up so that as we emerged from lunch, they could say hello. And this staff person, who is as tough as they come, almost fainted -- (laughter) -- which was -- I’m glad she didn’t because it would have caused an incident.

I was really touched by his words, and I of course agree with him. She is a jewel to the world, and she is without any doubt my favorite person. As the Telegraph said: ''She is the Queen of our hearts, and we will never see anyone like her again.''

Quote:
During her astonishing reign of more than 60 years, the Queen has graciously accepted countless posies and bunches of flowers from her adoring subjects.

But even the most elaborate bouquets pale in comparison with the stunning 21ft floral arch of at least 10,000 pastel blooms being created to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday year.

The dazzling tribute by the Royal Horticultural Society will be seen by the Queen when she attends the gala opening of the Chelsea Flower Show on May 23.
